Subject: Setting memory options for Ant in Eclipse

Hi all,


When running Ant from Eclipse, how does one set the -Xmx and -Xms memory
options inside Eclipse?  I've poked around and cannot seem to do it.
(This is to fix OutOfMemory exceptions that occur when I use the
<depend> task.)


I've tried launching Eclipse with -Xmx and -Xms options set.  I
understand this is normally set by using ANT_OPTS.  I looked in the
Windows/Preferences/Ant menu and at some other options but didn't see
anywhere in Eclipse to configure this.


Any help is appreciated.
