I would like to set permanent parameters for Java VM on Solaris, so I will don't need to set them for each NetBeans project. I have also Oracle 11g installed on this server and total RAM 24GB.
Please advice:
how to distribute RAM between Java and Oracle for the best productivity and
how to set  these -Xms and -Xmx parameters for Java.
Thank you

To set java parameters:

# which java
this will show the path for current java, eg. /usr/bin/java, normally this is a symbolic link.

To cleanup old java, just remove this link.

Then, create a symbolic link to your new java command where ever is:

# ln -s {new java path} /usr/bin/java (example only, depend on "which java" command output).

Don't know can set RAM to Java. One way can allocate RAM to Oracle is to set them in/etc/system file as recommemded by Oracle doc.
eg.
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=#######

Oracle and java handle the memory on their own.

Oracle 11 just requires an amount of memory and it will manage all the others settings.

A dev database with less than 100'000 rows per table can be handled in a 2-4 GB ram

Java requires a little more tuning, depending on the application it need to manage and the version. Generally starting setting -Xmx will be enough

If you start the java app from command line just add -Xmx1g
Es. java -Xmx1g main
For application servers and other complex java app there should be a file to set the java executable parameters

To have more info answer the following questions:
do you have a single oracle instance or multiple ?
what are you trying to run on java?

I have single instance, but the question is that when I try to set -Xmx and -Xms on Solaris version of Netbeans it doesn't accept any arrangements, and I have to leave it empty.
I want to set for Java 30% - 8g, but I can't, something block this arrangement.
