[oXygen-user] Can't edit 11 meg file
Fri Nov 23 12:59:53 CST 2007
Hey I am just observing this thread ...
On the jre when you start eclipse i belive you can set the amount of
memory allowed to be used by java ...
After googling "man java" i found this in the man page ...
*-Xmx*/n/ Specifies the maximum size, in bytes, of the memory allocation
pool. This value must be a multiple of 1024 greater than 2 MB.
Append the letter *k* or *K* to indicate kilobytes or the letter *m*
or *M* to indicate megabytes. The default value is 64MB. Exam-
Not sure this will help ... but if you start eclipse with a "large" number you may be ok is my guess ...
Keep in mind I am just a bystandard ...
ps I would assume turning off oxygen features such as "auto completion", etc ... would allow a document not to need as much memory ... but i have been wrong before ... you could try crippling oxygen in your options ... again this is a guess ...
