Hi,

I was generating a Webhelp output. Document is pretty big around 130MB and it failed.
The error was running out java heap space.

Can anybody tell me where I should added "-Xmx and -Xms" in the Webhelp process?

I am using XMetal Author Enterprise Version#: 6.0.1.030

Thanks!

In the advanced output options in XMetaL I think.
Something like this:
ANT_OPTS=-Xms512m -Xmx756m

There is a section in the "Release Notes" that discusses "Errors when generating output" and a subsection titled "Increase the amount of memory allocated to your Java processor".

There are various solutions listed there that you might try, including the ANT_OPTS parameter that gcrews has suggested.

Sorry just reply back. Thanks to gcrews and Derek Read.
I did try changing ANT_OPTS value to  -Xmx1024m or even -Xmx1236m, it failed.

Derek, could you guide me what Release Notes and where can I find it?

There is also a readme.html in the program folder and in the distribution file. :)
