Description apb 2009-02-27 23:11:17 UTC
I spent a good half hour searching for a way to specify JVM options for the Derby server that you can start from the IDE
and I could find no way to do so. This is very bad since my DB causes Derby to crash with out of memory and out of
PermGen space memory errors without extra options. I think the "Java DB Properties" window that is opened up when you
right click in the Services window under Databases:JavaDB:Properties should have an extra line for specifying JVM options.

this is a helpful feature to put in place since we use derby for developing various apps.

if netbeans is internally starting the DB using asadmin start-database

you can easily add the JVM options like so
--jvmoptions '-server -Xmx900m -Xms100m'

so having a text box in the properties window of derby node in the database tree would be quite useful
