Description Steve Loughran 2007-09-10 15:20:55 UTC
Having gone up to 64 bit Java, I find things consume more memory. I propose that
we have a property (ant.java.64.memory) which can be used to specify a
multiplier (as a percentage, 100, 150, 200, etc) for all -Xms and -Xmx memory
options used by Java tasks (and other things that use the code). This way,
builds on 64 bit boxes wont top out, even on build files written for 32 bit systems.
