I've heard of people going to all ends of the earth to get more memory for a machine running WSAD, but I've never heard of anyone intentionally trying to limit the memory the tool would use.

Cameron good point! I am doing some benchmarking and trying to set some constraints on memory like setting the max heap size and what not and someone told me that I should also set this. If I go about doing it where can I find steps to do this from the command line?
You may have already found the answer. If not here is a little help.
-vmargs -Xmx256M For large-scale development you should modify your VM arguments to make more heap available. This example allows the Java heap to grow to 256 MB. This may not be enough for large projects.
THe above is from ibm developers guide redbook.
Another tip from my personal experience, minimising WSAD 5.x window also releases any unused memory by the tool. I have verified this from the CPU utilization/memory usages.
