Hi all,

I am using the eclipse export product wizard to export a rcp product, however, currently I do experience errors while exporting the product with indigo (Eclipse Modeling Tools, Version: Indigo Release, Build id: 20110615-0604).

While running the export, I do get the following error:
An internal error occurred during: "Export Product".
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError

An internal error occurred during: "Collecting garbage".
unable to create new native thread

So far I was able to export the product by manually using "Run Garbage Collector", which I do not really consider being a solution.

My eclipse.ini is currently set to:
-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.2.0.v20110502.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.win32.x86_1.1.100.v20110502
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.modeling.product
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256M
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
512m
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.6
-Xms128m
-Xmx512m


Can anybody tell me how to fix this issue?

Hi all,

so far it seems, that I could solve this issue by adding
-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC

to my eclipse.ini.

I do not know much about Java GC interal matters, however, I found a bug report related to Java 5 and tried the GC policy mentioned above instead of the default handler. Seems so as if this is still an issue in Java 6, since I think eclipse is just utilizing the GC here.

However, I was still unable to redirect the GC. Is eclipe.ini the wrong place to put GC log parameters?

Just to complete this, obviously this issue was not related to eclipse.ini. After tweaking Java Control Panel settings, the log was not written before a system reboot...
