CIS 3.5.55810.432: Java heap limit


after installing COMODO firewall (no AV) and defense+ java applications could no longer be started.
I tracked the problem down to comodo reducing the maximum possible heap available for java.

CIS 3.5.55810.432 32bit
Windows XP SP3

C:>java -version
java version “1.6.0_10”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_10-b33)
Java HotSpot™ Client VM (build 11.0-b15, mixed mode, sharing)

The bug can be reproduced:
C:>java -Xmx1000M noclassneeded
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap
Could not create the Java virtual machine.

Disabling firewall/defense does not fix the problem.

Maximum possible heap with comodo is 930M, before it was 1350M

Is there any workaround to get the behaviour as it was before?


This issue has been fixed. Thanks for reporting it.
