In my application - running on eclipse 2.0.2 I'm getting a
java.lang.outOfMemoryError.

I want to try and use the java flags :

-Xms<size> set initial Java heap size
-Xmx<size> set maximum Java heap size

How should I do it through eclipse project ? and to what values should I
set them ?

Thank's

These types of questions are better asked on eclipse.tools but...
you can pass these arguments through to the vm using -vmargs
e.g. -vmArgs -Xmx380M

The values you set them to depend on the specifications of the system you
are working on.
Most of the posts I have seen talk about setting the max heap size to at
least 256M

You can specify this kind of options in the launch configuration of your
application. See attached example. Of course, 512M memory is not enough for
every application.
