Out of memory errors with MagicDraw and Eclipse

Some JVMs put restrictions on the total amount of memory available on the heap. If you are getting OutOfMemoryErrors while running Eclipse, the VM can be told to let the heap grow to a larger amount by passing the -vmargs command to the Eclipse launcher. For example, the following command would run Eclipse with a heap size of 512MB:

eclipse [normal arguments] -vmargs -Xmx512M [more VM args]

Some JVMs have restrictions on permanent generation memory, which can be exceeded in integration. In order to increase permanent generation memory size, you need to specify additionally -XX:MaxPermSize (use it for Sun JVM). For example, the following command would run Eclipse with a permanent generation memory size of 128MB:

eclipse [normal arguments] -vmargs -XX:MaxPermSize=128M [more VM args]
