How to increase jvm heap space on studio 6?

How does one change the jvm settings for the studio version 6?

I tried changing the ini file but I still get heap space errors running a report in preview mode.

I'm using Studio 5 (not 6) on OS X. The file is located in the following path:

/Applications/Jaspersoft Studio Studio.ini

Be sure to make a backup copy of the file, then change -Xms and -Xmx lines to the following (assuming you have enough RAM on-board):



Restart Studio and you should hopefully have enough resources allocated to the JVM.

Modify "Jaspersoft Studio.ini" file.

AS I said I did change the ini file but it seemed not to change anything.

If you're using a more current version, e.g. 6.3.0 you'll find it in a slightly different location in the Application package.

/Applications/TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio Studio Professional.ini

The first part (e.g. /Applications/TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio is where your Studio Application is located. The rest can be found by right-clicking the application and showing the package contents. (Usually the second entry in the context menu.)
