Subject Re: How to increase memory used by JVM in Ant

This is most likely a logic/programming error.
Target A calls Target B which in turn calls Target A which again calls
Target B..
Target A -> Target B -> Target A -> Target B..........
This sets up an infinite recursion, which will result in a

You can increase the stack size by adding the -Xoss JVM parameter, but this
will not help.
It will only delay the StackOverFlowError till the now larger stack fills

This will not happen only if there you have set some exit condition which
will not continue the recursive call
(This is what you would do when you write a recursive function in any
programming language )
