to increase to 1 Gb the available memory size.
If your are under Unix, and you are not sure what is the JVM your browser is using, you can check the following steps.
Under the user home directory, there should be a directory:
.mozilla .netscape ??
Browsing the file plugin-list or pluginreg.dat under the corresponding directory, you can know the exact JVM used by your browser. Under .netscape:
PluginList Version 1
/usr/j2se/jre/plugin/sparc//ns4/javaplugin.so 1033493714 application/x-java-apple
and under .mozilla:
0:application/pdf:Portable Document Format:pdf:$ /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.2_02/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so:$ :$
So in the first case, you can change to directory /usr/j2se/jre/bin; in the second case, to directory /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.2_02/jre/bin and then execute:
