App up and running: memory usage

Hi-

Now that I have my app running I wanted to check with the java users in this forum to see if the memory appears high.

1.) did reboot of windows
2.) started db server
3.) started my app from the command line

I now have 3 java process in task manager 51k, 41k, and 28k. Eclipse is not running. I have a apache derby client db with swt toolkit and hibernate framework running a simple shell that has a table grid with data.

Please let me know from your experience if that is excessive and I have done something way wrong or is that sound somewhere in the neighborhood. I am not looking for perfect but I wonder if it is kind of close.

You people are the best!

thanks

HI-

I was able to do a little research on lunch break and yesterday. I found out that for really big hibernate applications, according to some users, it does in fact use lots of memory. I am going to concentrate on hibernate practices to reduce memory usage when I find tips going forward. My applications won't be really big.

Have a cool week,
later
