    Default boolean array maximum size

    hi everyone

    this is my first post here..

    is boolean[] (array single dimension) has maximum size?
    in my experiment, it can handle up to size of 178868564.
    i'm just curious if it's size varies in different machines?

    thank you..

    The theoretical maximum size is Integer.MAX_INT, but you'll run out of memory sooner or later. So, yes, it depends on the machine and VM memory settings.

    I don't know. There's probably no solving option, because this is the introductions section.
