Description gregd 2004-03-19 22:55:30 UTC
How can I modify the heap size used by the 
internal Tomcat server?
Comment 1 Marek Fukala 2004-03-22 08:33:28 UTC
You can do that by editing (setting the -Xm* paramater to
CATALINA_OPTS or JAVA_OPTS properties) the startup
scripts of the tomcat server. The scripts resides in
$CATALINA_HOME/bin. For the internall (bundled) tomcat server they
resides in {netbeans install dir}/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.19/bin.

Do you think that the missing possibility to set startup properties
for the tomcat server is a problem/bug for you?
Comment 2 gregd 2004-03-22 20:40:43 UTC
I am probably mixing up the development world and the deployment 
world.  Our application seems to require more heap than the default 
when it has been delivered.  On my development PC I can probably 
live with the default, or change it by editing the 
file, but I guess if I could have all that I want it could be set as 
an option in the ide.  Also I guess based on the fact that I have 
used JRun in the past, and they have a place to change Java 
Arguments, it would be nice if Tomcat's Administration tool would 
allow those changes also.  Is it true that in the Windows 
environment, that the service has to be re-installed to change the 
heap size?

There could be a possibility to set tomcat server startup paramaters
in case when the server is started from the IDE.
