Problem:

How do you change the default Java maximum heap size for StarTeam Cross-Platform Client on a Linux platform?

Resolution:

Increase the default heap size (-Xmx256m) in the StarTeamCP.lax file to increase the maximum memory. (Location: opt/StarTeamCP_2009/bin).

For example, the default heap size: lax.nl.java.option.additional=-Xmx256m

Can be changed to 1024m (1GB): lax.nl.java.option.additional=-Xmx1024m

Note: The amount of increase in the heap size is dependent on your environment's memory capacity.
