[cdt-dev] Re: OutOfMemory debugging in Eclipse

I was able to get rid of that out of memory though the root cause is
not yet clear for me.

As you might noticed, I was creating units based on the file names
I've got from IIndex. So, I was locking the index for entire set of
the files and was releasing it at the end.
With the mat tool I've found that fResultCache has the biggest size.
After some debugging, I've realized that I need to release the index
once I had finished with the particular file.
That is working fine.
Nevertheless, the root cause is still unclear for me. I have to say
that the program I'm developing can use both ways to deal with the
code: index and/or AST. It is amazing that when it uses index only,
there is no Out Of Memory! This error hapens only if I'm using AST. If
program cannot get AST unit (I've got couple files with
StackOverflowError), it falls back to index usage (for this particular
file only! Next files are parsed by AST). Soon after that, Out Of
Memory happens.
