Of course you get OOME if you use memory only database and your data size plus overheads exceeds heap.

Is it unusual that Derby (used in-memory only) seems to throw an out of memory exception when executing 180,000 batched insert statements?
(The JVM was started with -Xms1024m -Xmx2048m):

Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: Java exception: 'GC overhead limit exceeded: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError'.

Are there memory limitations for Derby running in the in-memory only mode?
Is there anything that can be done to avoid getting such errors?
