My max heap size is apparently set to 64M (found near bottom right corner where the garbage collection icon is) and after having the program running for quite a while, the program runs out of heap space and prompts me to shut down. Since I have plenty of RAM available, I was wondering how I could increase the max heap size to 128M+?
That's a Java VM behaviour. If nothing other is specified on Windows systems a max heap size of 64MB is set. You can set this VM-Parameter when you start SE with:
sqlexplorer.exe -vmargs -Xmx128M

thanks! works great!
Is there a way to increase heap size
You can specify this as command line arguments or in the eclipse.ini:
This works for SQL Explorer standalone in the same way, because it's only a branded eclipse.
