I'm trying to export a project to eclipse IDE and im doing all the first steps correctly. I managed to fill in the security information eg. security token and everything then I select that I want to migrate all the pages components and static resources. and when i click finish it updates for a while and the freezes. It says Request status : In Progress and then after a couple of minutes it says "

Unable to create project 
Reason : OutOfmemory Javaheap space"

I don't know why it says that. It's a new laptop running on Linux so there is plenty of memory


it is a problem of eclipse, not of system. Please add some more JVM memory in eclipse.ini file (in Eclipse folder)





Hope it helps you :)

  • Hey. I went to the Ini file and there were following lines there :-vmargs -Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.7 -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -Doomph.update.url=download.eclipse.org/oomph/updates/milestone/latest – Greg Apr 13 '16 at 13:46
  • is there a way to increase the size ? – Greg Apr 13 '16 at 13:51
  • You might want to edit -Xmx2048m and -Xms1024m. It will increase the heap size of JVM in eclipse. – Anurag Bhardwaj Apr 14 '16 at 4:14
