64 bit JVM with a 32 bit application to extend memory limit?
I'm new to java, I tried looking for this information on the net but found nothing, maybe it's very specific and difficult to come by.
I'm trying to extend the maximum heap size with a 32 bit application that uses a 32 bit JVM that resides in it's program folder. I use Windows 7 64 bit, if I'm not wrong then my effective limit is somewhere around 1.5gb even if I can set it to 4gb on the program's memory options.
Is there a way to extend this memory limit 'cheating' somehow?
I thought about making the application use a 64bit JVM, is this possible?
Thanks in advance.
