    Hello,

    [ Repost from comp.lang.java.machine ]

    I seem to remember of a post recently in a newsgroup (or was it on a web
    site...), telling that there was a trend now to question the tuning of the
    heap size with Xms=Xmx, as it would lead to memory fragmentation (preventing
    heap shrinkage and leading to unexpected OutOfMemoryException's, IIRC).

    Do you have information on this ?

    Thanks.

    Ben.
