Have you tried to use the attribute 'memoryMaximumSize'
and 'memoryInitialSize' of the javac task!?

Although the ANT_OPTS should be passed through to the
JVM, I run into a java heap space error, too, while deploying
to a Tomcat . . . Anyway, I am not sure, if the pass through
is really done. Perhaps anyone knows more about that.

An alternative would be to use the 'fork' attribute, to use
the JDK externally.
