Last week I had the pleasure of re-installing my Dell laptop from an original (to empty) image. And this week I’ve been irritated a few times to much by a out-of-memory crashing Oracle JDeveloper in combination with the BPM plugin.

So quick reminder for myself (no rocket science, i know):

Memory settings are located in: %JDEV_HOME%jdeveloperidebinide.conf
Default is apparantly 640MB (at least my 11.1.1.6 install) and can be found at the line:

AddVMOption  -Xmx640M

increase to 1024 for instance:

AddVMOption  -Xmx1024M
