Hooray! The Java heap space error seems to be solved – at least for now;)
As I mentioned in a previous post; I played with the Eclipse start up settings to increase heap space but still had an Out Of Memory error. Based on a friend’s suggestion; I added the memory argument to the run/debug arguments of my grails project and this seems to be a solution to the problem. Probably the forums were talking about the same setting; but I didn’t find any detailed explanation about this at that time…
Here’s the screenshot, which shows were the memory argument has to be placed in the RUN/DEBUG window. Basically what you do is to add -Xmx512m to the VM arguments. If you click on the image, you can see the the entire screenshot of the Run/Debug Dialog window.
Hope this helps other Eclipse-Grails-OutOfMemory horror victims too…!
