This page gives information for users attempting to packages with XDC and getting java out of memory error.


When compiling a XDC package which internally allocates huge amount of memory. For example see below,

TableEntry   table[];
obj.table.length  = 1000; /* Allocates memory from JVM */

Here memory is allocated when length member of this array is assigned some value. If this value is large, it throws java.lang.OutOfMemory error.
