java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

Reported by cdmackay | October 4th, 2008 @ 05:57 AM | in Support

I left JB beta8 running for several days; it's now got into a state where it's partially unresponsive.

I see a lot of these on the cmdline:

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

here's an example:

although it's notable that system memory usage does not seem overly high.

    Generally you want to launch JBidwatcher with -Xmx512m as a precaution. It tries not to use TOO much memory, but it is in Java, and it can easily bubble over the normal max of 64M. When software runs out of memory, everything gets very bad, very quickly. :(

Also, I was searching for an accomplished individual who can compose the tasks in a superior manner, also I am pursuing uk-dissertation.com review to enhance my composing abilities. Happy to realize that these specialists are prepared to chip away at the moderate prics however.
