Subject RE: Out of memory issues when compiling
Date Sun, 11 Aug 2002 11:59:03 GMT
I resolved my out of memory issue by adding "-Xmx256m" in the shell script 
for ant when it is starting
    $JAVACMD -classpath "$LOCALCLASSPATH" -Dant.home="${ANT_HOME}" 
$ANT_OPTS -Xmx256m "$@"

The clue that there may be multiple copies of Ant on the machine (it gets 
shipped with a lot of packages) was the clue in what you said that really 
helped.  Thanks, Martin.  I hadn't been modifying the Ant shell script that 
was actually running.

As an aside, Prasanna also recommended trying the 
compiler="modern"  attribute in the javac tag.  I tried that and it didn't 
work for me, either.  Although I bet it's supported in the jars mentioned 

I've got a solution that works, so I'm a movin' on.

Thanks for you help!
