Maybe you just have the default ISABELLE_BUILD_JAVA_OPTIONS, which are meant to

To allow heavy-duty AFP maintenance, I use something like this in


or like this:


I currently have what you had sent me some time ago:

JEDIT_JAVA_OPTIONS="-Xms256m -Xmx4096m -Xss2m -Dactors.corePoolSize=8

Is the above ISABELLE_BUILD_JAVA_OPTIONS independent to that, or does one imply the other?

Independent. When you experience "isabelle build" problems due to JVM resource shortage, you should re-adjust ISABELLE_BUILD_JAVA_OPTIONS, not JEDIT_JAVA_OPTIONS.

There are also other ways to do it, but for now we should leave it as this simplified model.
