Setting the Java VM Using the - vm Parameter
Let us assume you wish to execute the Developer Studio on another Java VM than the one already assigned as standard during the installation. If this Java VM is installed on your PC, you only need to specify the new path using the argument –vm.
Proceed as follows:
1. Click the corresponding desktop shortcut using the right mouse button and subsequently choose Properties from the context menu.
2. Choose the Shortcut tab.
3. In the command line under the target for the respective argument –vm <vm_location>, enter the path name.
...SapIde.exe -vm “C:\j2sdk1.4.1_01\bin\javaw.exe” ...
4. Choose OK to confirm.
Now, if you start the Developer Studio using the desktop shortcut, the newly assigned Java VM will be accessed.
Note for using VM parameters:
The VM-specific parameters define
storage options and influence the performance behavior of the development
To ensure problem-free operation with the Developer Studio, the VM parameters have been pre-assigned with optimum default values. These values are adapted for the Developer Studio and are aimed at providing a sufficient storage configuration. All the VM parameters have been exported to a separate file with the name vm.parameters. This file is in the installation directory of the Developer Studio.
