Subject RE: Increasing heap size in Tomcat
Date Tue, 28 Sep 2004 13:15:46 GMT

I think in Tomcat 3.x the variable to set is TOMCAT_OPTS, not JAVA_OPTS
(Tomcat 4.x and 5.x) or CATALINA_OPTS (Tomcat 4.x and 5.x).  This is
covered in the documentation
p) which you should have read by now.  If you haven't, go RTFM ;)

Beyond that, I've never used Tomcat 3.x myself, and so I can't offer
much help.  But I do think the above answers your question.
