I was facing a OutOfMemoryError(no stack trace available) error in my application.
I read it from one of the sites that using java -Xmx option we can increase the size.Hence i used the -Xmx100m option and could solve my problem.
I want to have a clear understanding abt the -X option especially applicable to my case (increasing the memory).what actually it does , and its robustness.
