On our SUN workstations, ect-sun.ecst.csuchico.edu (tiglon.ecst.csuchico.edu: IP 188.8.131.52), we are currently running
Java 1.3 at /usr/java. Under /usr there are also versions of java1.1 and
java1.2, make sure to set your PATH and CLASSPATH accordingly if you do not
want the default of java 1.3.
On the old suns (expert) things (BDK, SWING, etc) are
still under /opt/java.

- And what about size? If you run an image processing tool using a large jpg file and get a Java error complaining that it ran out of memory after issuing a couple commands, it might be that the VM has ran out of memory. To correct it, execute the program with the -mx option, to specify a larger heap size.

There are three engineers in a car: an electrical engineer, a chemical
engineer, and a Microsoft engineer. Suddenly the car just stops by
the side of the road, and the three engineers look at each other
wondering what could be wrong.
The electrical engineer suggests stripping down the electronics of the
car and trying to trace where a fault might have occurred. The
chemical engineer, not knowing much about cars suggests that maybe the
fuel is becoming emulsified and getting blocked somewhere.
Then, the Microsoft engineer, not knowing much about anything, comes
up with a suggestion. "Why don't we close all the windows, get out,
get back in, open the windows again, and maybe it'll work!?"
