My Force.com IDE is not working

I installed the latest force.com IDE version 16.0, then every five minutes, there will be error: java heap out of memory. I am wondering why?

The answer is in the Force.com IDE FAQ:

I tried the method to increase the memory, but it doesn't work...

How much additional memory did you give it?  How much memory (real and virtual) do you have on your computer?  How many metadata files are in each Force.com project?

My eclipse ini file settings:-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
-framework
plugins\org.eclipse.osgi_3.4.3.R34x_v20081215-1030.jar
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
-Xmx512m
-Xmx1024m

 

I have around 30-40 files including apex classes, pages, staticresources and components. Thanks!

You have the "-Xmx" (max heap size) param specified twice.  The first one should be "-Xms", for min heap size.

it uses XMX twice :(

So it did.  Thanks for pointing that out.  It's fixed now!

 

Now the real question is, did that solve your OOM issue?

seems no...
