a simple jvm launcher

ever wanted to have more memory available with jvm, but didn't want to write platform dependent shell script or .bat files? here is a sampler, it spawns a new vm with more memory from the class file, which can be packed as a jar (you need jdk 1.5 for this code):

import javax.swing.*;

public class Hello {
public static void main(String [] args) {
if (args.length == 0) {
try {
System.out.println("I now have : " + Runtime.getRuntime().maxMemory());
Process p = new ProcessBuilder("java", "-Xmx256m", "Hello", "memory").start();
} catch(Exception e) {
} else {
JFrame f = new JFrame("Hi! I have more memory!: " + Runtime.getRuntime().maxMemory());
} // end if

break: A Comparison of Solaris, Linux, and FreeBSD Kernels at OpenSolaris.org

A Comparison of Solaris, Linux, and FreeBSD Kernels at OpenSolaris.org: " and debugging tools are critical to get a correct understanding of system behavior. Yes, you can read the source code, but I maintain that you can easily misread the code. Having tools available to test your hypothesis about how the code works is invaluable. In this respect, I see Solaris with kmdb, mdb, and DTrace as a clear winner. I have been 'reverse engineering' Solaris for years. I find that I can usually answer a question by using the tools faster than I can answer the same question by reading source code. With Linux, I don't have as much choice for this. FreeBSD allows use of gdb on kernel crash dumps. gdb can set breakpoints, single step, and examine and modify data and "
