Wait. How much memory your program WILL use or how much memory you can 'allocate' for it?

If it's the second, you can configurate that through -Xms and -Xmx.

If I execute my application, how much memory will get allocated by applications?

You can create an instance for the Runtime class and use the totalmemory() method in it to know the total amount of memory in the Java virtual machine as well as you can use the freeMemory() method which returns the amount of free memory in the Java Virtual Machine. If there are any queries you can contact me here. Thank you.

Functions from class java.lang.Runtime
freeMemory() returns the amount of free memory in the Java Virtual Machine.
totalmemory() returns the total amount of memory in the Java virtual machine.
Lets take an example:

In above code class employee have two variables declared of type int and float. If I create object of class Employee one object will occupy total 8 bytes of memory. Similarly, if I designed whole application, can I directly calculate how much memory my whole application will occupy.

Plus overhead. Java classes are not like C structs which does have a known size that is simply the sizes of all its members added up.

That means do I have to manually calculate total memory may be accupied by my application? There is no direct way to find out using java?
