Hi guys,
I have this memory exception( java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space).
I know I need to increase the memory size by altering the JAVA_OPT's
-XX ermSize=128m -XX:MaxPermSize=196m parameters from the command line, but I use Tomcat 6.0 as a windows service, I want the changes to occur automatically instead of using the command prompt. Can somebody help me with this.
Thanks,
Samanth.

Based on my research what I found was that I need to set the options from command prompt as ++JvmOptions="-XX:MaxPermSize=128m"
But I am not sure how to do it.
Can some body help me with that.

Thanks,
Samanth.

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place.
