Odd.  Was having just this exact same problem yesterday.

Turned out that, even after upping the memory to ant and successfully
compiling the java file, we couldn't run the class because it was too large
(or more like, a certain piece of data was over 64k).  This was a machine
generated .java file, so not too surprising that happened.

Made me wonder though.  If you're running out of memory building it, does
that mean there's a good chance you won't be able to run it because the
class it too large.
