I am using Eclipse 3.2 on WinXP.

My question is how to increase the JVM's heap in Eclipse?

Thank you so much for this...

I suspected doing it by adding the args to my WinXP short cut's eclipse.exe (command line).

But, is there a way to do this by adding it to the eclipse.ini file?

The eclipse.ini file already contains settings for heap size. Just change those.

I agree. Here's the link:
