I was experiencing the same problem with the Browse in version 0.8.

I increased the java heap size** (making initial and max the same) and voila.  I also upgraded to 0.8.2 ... not sure if I tested browse at 0.8.2 before I increased the heap size.

To increase the java heap, I put the following in the vufind.sh script:

##################################################
# 2008-05-21 nrd  increase java heap size to improve performance
# Set JAVA_OPTIONS
# Note: flawed if JAVA_OPTIONS is set, but no heap params
##################################################
if [ -z "$JAVA_OPTIONS" ]
then
  JAVA_OPTIONS="-Xms750M -Xmx750M"
fi

See http://docs.sun.com/source/817-2180-10/pt_chap5.html#wp57027  for an explanation of why the initial and maximum heap size should be the same.

At http://www.vufind.org/demo, I see the following problems. Is the demo at version 0.8.2 and have the problems
been addessed since 0.8.2? If so, when will the fixes be available in 0.8.3?


1. On default search of all fields, the Narrow Search options hangs with "Loading Narrow Options..."

2. If you do Browse the Catalog and start with any option except tag, it never seems to get beyond the second pane.

3. The Advanced search with a Boolean AND doesn't seem to work, at least not for this specific example:

title: java
author: deitel

On one try, I got this: Showing 1 - 20  of 623050
On another try, I got no matching records.

But this record is in there: http://vufind.org/demo/Record/432923


Thanks,

Jim
