QuickTip: Setting Java Heap Size for Ant

Posted on Thursday, March 13, 2008


Today once I started getting ‘Not enough memory’ while creating the build of a huge project using Ant.

The easy way to increase the heap size is

set ANT_OPTS="-Xms512m -Xmx512m"

For me it worked without the quotes
set ANT_OPTS=-Xms512m -Xmx512m

For setting up the Java Heap size for other app servers and frameworks refer to this link.
