java.lang.OutOfMemoryError.Error is null


Not applicable

While deploying the adobe-livecycle-websphere.ear file iam getting the "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError.Error is null." Can you help in rectifying this error?

We are Thinking that this error is because of heap size, if we are correct please do let us know how to increase the heap size.

We kept Initial Heap Size box as 256 and the Maximum Heap Size box 1024.Also we tried with Maximum Heap Size box as 0(Zero) but we are getting the same error. Please Help us ....

The heap size that needs to be increased is for the ejbdeploy tool located in %WAS_HOME%\deploytool\itp\ejbdeploy.bat.

You can set it to 512m and that should resolve your problem.

Thanks a lot... I changed the heap size as you told.It worked out. But Iam getting another error related to version.Actually while installing websphere jdk 1.4 was installed by default but i have jdk1.5 in my system.I am not aware about which jdk that the application server uses. whether the following error is related to this java version? If so what can i do to proceed furthur?

Do you have WebSphere 6.1 SP5 installed?

What version do you get when you execute the command %JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -version?

This is coming from the installation document:

Installing WebSphere Application Server

You must install WebSphere Application Server 6.1 for running LiveCycle ES products.

When you run the LiveCycle ES installer, you should run it as the same user.

Installing a Fix Pack to WebSphere 6.1

After you have installed WebSphere 6.1, you must update to Fix Pack 5 or later before you deploy LiveCycle ES.

Refer to the WebSphere support website for access to the WebSphere updates.

Setting the JAVA_HOME and PATH environment variables

As part of your WebSphere installation, a Java SDK was installed. The JAVA_HOME and PATH environment

variables must point to the Java SDK where LiveCycle ES is to be deployed.

➤ To set the JAVA_HOME environment variable (Windows):

1. Select Start > Control Panel > System.

2. Click the Advanced tab.

3. Click Environment Variables.

4. In the System Variables area, click New.

5. Enter JAVA_HOME as the variable name and enter the directory where you installed Java SDK. This directory is where WebSphere installed the Java SDK containing the /bin sub directory.

For example,type the following:

C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\java

Note: To verify your JAVA_HOME environment variable, open a command prompt and run the following

command: %JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -version

You should receive a response that begins with java version "1.5.0".
