    Default Can we increase the stack size for JVM ?

    Hello,

    I am using a recursive function in my standalone java application which causes the stack over flow. So, I have increased the stack size to 2048k.

    Is that fine to increase the stack size? If not can any one suggest me how to over the issue.

    Thanks in advance,
    Prasanna

    Post your code? It may be that there's something wrong with your recursive function.

    If you are getting a StackOverflowError your code is probably doing something wrong and most likely calling it self over and over again without breaking out of the pattern. This will require a change to the code not increase the JVM heap size.

    However if you are receiving an OutOfMemoryError its because your program is trying to allocate more memory than the JVM has been given so a common solution to that problem is to increase the amount of heap size for the JVM.

    I think its in the recursive loop and never coming out of it .

    Thank you for all the suggestions. My code is very huge to post. I will look into the recursive function once again and try to find out the loop hole.

    Thanks you once again,
