Hi,

I am using eclipse and working with a program that stores a lot of the information in memory. My laptop has 4Gigs of RAM but eclipse is only using 356MB's

I tried changing the arguments to allocate higher memory but ecliple fails to load the JDM.

Any solutions??

should give you a gig.

You don't say if the program is being run as a developed program or part of eclipse.

If it is being run as a developed program, in the run configurations you have the option to add VM arguments as above to allocate more memory to the started process.
