Hi,
I have got an 'Out of memory Exception'while trying to build using ANT.Inorder to solve this isssue,I think I need to increase the heap size.
Can anyone tell me how to increase the heap size of JVM or let me know if there is any other way of resolving this issue?

Thanks in advance

Thanks& Regards,
Sudha

Use "-Xmx256m" to set the max memory size. "-Xmn256m" to set min memory size

If you enough memory in the machine, say 512 or above, then you can use aggressive heap. This can be used with jdk1.4 or above. So jvm will decide the heap size according to the free memory.

JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -XX:+AggressiveHeap"

I think it is "-Xms256m" instead of "-Xmn256m"

All these Java settings are documented in the tooldocs section of the SDK documentation. Unless you are working with limited disk space you really should have those docs on your hard drive.
