Open Control Panel, then Java Control Panel. Click on the Temp Internet Files "Settings" and look at the Cache setting. You may have to create your setting in the JAR properties, if it exists. If not, you have to create a new. This page explains the procedure for increasing cache and buffer size:

I don't think you need to do anything extra to run java program, you can try increasing the virtual memory
of windows box if memory is an issue.
