Can I set JVM memory size when running applets?

Hi,

I have downloaded an applet that renders images and I have

a problem with Java memory. I remember that default maximum

size that applet can use is 70MB, and the problem is 70MB is

not enough when rendering big images. It is OK when I add

"-Xmx -Xms" parameters in the Java Control but I cannot tell

everyone who wants to see my images to go control panel, add

parameters etc..

So my question is...

Is it possible add "-Xmx -Xms" parameters inside the applet file

so that these parameters run automatically when executing applet?

Thanks in advance for your reply!

Hyung

No, the applet and its tag have no control over those settings. That could be used for denial-of-service attacks: imagine the page setting the JVM to take as much memory as the system has, and then using it all up.

Is there any other way to solve this memory issue?

Hi Sang-Wook Kim ,

You can do it while splitting an image into number of spices and take each spices in diff diff Canvas, and finally put them over an Applet.
