Either you have one very large JAR file on your class path, or you have to many JAR files. How much memory have you assigned to Tomcat?

It depends on how you start Tomcat. If you installed it on Windows using the installer, there is a Tomcat configuration tool available. With this you can specify how much memory the JVM allocates for Tomcat (as well as other JVM properties).
If you installed Tomcat without the installer (i.e. from a ZIP file) or are using Linux then I cannot tell you where to change this.
