The FAQs for the Java Hotspot VM include the statement

As of Java SE 6, the Windows /3GB boot.ini feature is not supported.

I've searched the Sun site and Google, but can't find any more mention of this. Does anyone know anything more - is it as simple as Java will no longer be able to make use of the extra memory space that the /3GB option provides or is it more serious - will Java not work properly if the /3GB option is set ?

Thanks for any help

Stuart
