Does anybody knows ArrayList Maximum Size?
if i give ArrayList al=new ArrayList(Integer.MAX_VALUE);

then it is giving this exception:

java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Requested array size exceeds VM limit

Integer.MAX_VALUE is the maximum size of an ArrayList.
You are encountering an exhaustion of heap space (a failed alloc by the VM).
You can simply give your VM more heap space using the -Xmx option when you start it up
