Hello all,

SOme times i get out of memory error when I try to debug project in eclipse.Theres are no errors in the code.
If i restart my PC and start eclipse again it goes away
Does any one knows how to handle this out of memory error.It says before starting eclipse from comandline give options to increase the memory.Does anyone know how to do that?

Thanks,
Trupti

Trupti,
Hi, have you installed any plugins recently. Every once in a blue moon I get OOM errors and most of the time they were cause by a plugin. In your case it happens only when debugging right? I've read post of people setting the VM arguments for the debugging profile like:

Menu>Run>Debug>Arguments(Tab)
Set VM args to something like -mx300

Give that a try.

Brian,

Thanks for the reply,
but I am trying to debugg a remote java application and for that there is no VM Arguments option available.

Thanks,

What App Server or Web Container are you trying to debug into. It might be the way you are setting the VM parameters on the server for debugging. I'm remote debugging a Weblogic Application and the parameters I use are:

-Xdebug -Xnoagent -Djava.compiler=NONE -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=2015 -ms64m -mx64m

What are yours?

You can start eclipse with following arguments
eclipse.exe -vmargs -Xmx256M to take care of this error.

If you are using windows the easy way is to create a shortcut and in the
target parameter of shortcut supply these parameters.
