heap size

    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

      For more information see here:
