Hi

Any help is appreciated.

is it possible to override the switches provided to the jvm programmatically?
Eg., if jvm is started like this

java -Xms64m myprog, then is it possible to set the "Xms" value inside my java program during run-time.

thanks

No, not in general. Switches like -Xmx set up the structure of the Java heap, which is already initialized and operating by the time your code gets control.

Here at the Ranch, we consider it quite rude to post the same question to more than one forum. Please Read this before posting again. I've deleted the other two copies of this topic.
