  2. For Sun JDK you can play with Xmx / Xmx options (run java -X to see what they mean). For example, you can alter command line in your tomcat startup script to start with smth. like java -Xms128Mb -Xmx256M ... This means "pre-alocate 128Mb initially and allow to grow up to 256M"

    VS
  3. How can I increase my tomcat memory from netbeans? Is that even possible?
    NetBeans Help says to add the parameters to this file \netbeans\bin\ide.cfg, so I added this line (-Xms128Mb -Xmx256M) but it didn´t work.

    Thanks
    Tati.
