Hi Everyone,

Few days ago i had problems with my Eclipse running out of memory, and so i increased it but somehow the heap size shown at the bottom of Eclipse still remains the same. My current eclipse.ini file is something like this:



I increased the heap size to 768MB and still the heap size is shown as 495MB. Could you tell me how to increase the heap size of Eclipse permanently?

This should be the JVM parameter that sets the maximum (mx) heap size.

Oh.. ok! I changed it to 1024MB and the 768MB to 1024MB and Eclipse failed to start. Gave an exception of Exit Code 1 or something. So i changed it to lower values.
