    Webhelp generation failed due to file size is too big

    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. 🙂
