Error:“java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space” in Maven build

0 votes

I'm getting this error while building Maven project, I increased MAVEN_OPTS but all the same, I found some similar posts but they are refering to something else. How do I fix this?

The system is out of resources.
Consult the following stack trace for details.

Hello @kartik,

When you increased MAVEN_OPTS, you increase the MaxPermSize, as in example:

export MAVEN_OPTS="-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m"

(or on Windows:)

set MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m

Hope this is helpful!
