    Default Java heap size


    I am trying to increase the heap size of JVM. I am using Eclipse as an IDE.

    I do so by using eclipse -vmargs -Xmx2048m..

    And when I try to see whether JVM has increased the size by
    Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();

    But I find that the memory maximum which could be allocated is just 980mb.

    Can anyone help me with this ?

    how much available memory do you have on the machine you are trying to run this on? Why does eclipse need 2G of ram?

    Windows --> prefeence-->java-->installed JRE-->click on the java version installed and click edit button right and give the value -Xmx768m in theDefault VM arguments and click ok.
