out of memory exception

I am using a linked list and one of the exceptions I'd like to include in the
add or push() method is in the case that the list gets so large that - run out of memory.
However, since I'm not familiar with such an exception, I'm not sure how I would code it.

Can someone tell me if there is a common or known exception for this?

You can't do much once you've got an OutOfMemoryException. The JVM is...out of memory! I would try and think of ways to prevent this in the first place. Have you played around with the min and max heap size? Run your program in a profiler like JProbe and find out what's taking up the most memory.

Hope that helps!

You make me thing of a program in loop. Check your program code for looping.
