Hello again,

Am using Eclipse 3.2 on Apple's OS X Tiger...

Been using the MyEclipse plug-in, for J2EE development.

Under the Eclipse.app executable, I selected "Show Package Contents", and then traversed / found the location of the eclipse.ini file.

Edited the file (with appropriate memory parameters):

However, I get a error message from Eclipse stating that I need to increase the memory size and it lists the required memory as Xms128m and Xmx512m...

For some odd reason, it doesn't seem to notice that I already did this in the .ini file...

On WinXP, you can add args (by appending parameters right after the executable, by editing the shorcut):

eclipse.exe add_args

How can one do the same thing on OS X Tiger?

Many, many thanks!
