Subject Re: Out of memory error when building geronimo

same here, upgrading to PermGenSpace of 512m did help.

But currently the build still fails while building the tomcat7 integration:

[org.apache.geronimo.system.configuration.DependencyManager] : Could not start bundle: org.apache.geronimo.configs.tomcat7
org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Unresolved constraint in bundle org.apache.geronimo.configs.tomcat7

try another OPTs?..

JAVA_OPTS     -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m

I'm trying to build geronimo server trunk with sun jdk 1.6.0_20 on my winXP. I have this environment
variable set.
         MAVEN_OPTS = -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m
Before issue the build command, I echo this variable in command prompt window, and I can see
the value is exactly what I have set (-Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m).
Then I issue the build command (i.e., mvn clean install) in the root dir of trunk, the build
gets failed in serveral minutes with error msg indicates out of memory.

[INFO] Compilation failure
Failure executing javac, but could not parse the error:

The system is out of resources.
Consult the following stack trace for details.
 at java.util.ArrayList.newElementArray(Unknown Source)
 at java.util.ArrayList.growAtEnd(Unknown Source)
 at java.util.ArrayList.add(Unknown Source)
When I echo the environment variable again, but its value changes to "-Xmx512m". 
Does somebody know what happened to MAVEN_OPTS? Why its value changes after build command?

Best regards,
Han Hong Fang
