    Default Increasing Java heap space

    Hello all. I am trying to create an array of ints with 10,000,000+ elements but I get an error 'java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space'. I understand that I can increase my heap space somehow, but I don't really know how. I have a very good computer so I would like to double it at least. Thanks.

    if you type java on its own on the command line you will get help about options available. One of them is -X. Type java -X and you will get further help about the -X options. Good luck.
