Subject RE: OutOfMemory errors
Date Tue, 10 Sep 2002 21:40:06 GMT
Actually, as one may have noticed from another post, I just myself got an
OutOfMemoryError using <subant>, after adding still another (big) project to
my sub-build list ;-)

I applied the medicine I advised below (forking <javac>), and it worked for
me, albeit with the weird message I reported in this other posts.

I guess now I have a bit more motivation to add the 'fork' attribute to
<subant>, although I found a suitable work around for now. --DD

Also, to lighten up the memory usage of the sub-builds themselves, they
should fork whenever possible, especially for memory hungry tasks like
<javac>. Forking guarantees the memory is freed, since the process exits!
