java heap space problem using JNLP

Hey all,

I have a little experience working with JNLP so i am having some trouble regarding the heap space problem. My application needs to have a suitable amount of heap space available so what i did was to change the heap size in the jnlp like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jnlp spec="1.5+" codebase="" href="">
        <title>Applet Takes Params</title>
        <vendor>Dynamic Team</vendor>
        <!-- Application Resources -->
        <java version="1.7+" href="" java-vm-args="-ea" initial-heap-size="128m" max-heap-size="512m"/>
        <jar href="applet_AppletWithParameters.jar"  />
         name="Applet Takes Params"
             <param name="downloadURL" value=""/>
     <update check="background"/>



Now, when i run the app,it gives me these strange lines in the java console when applet call is made :

handleLaunchJVM(): RemoteJVMLauncher.setCallBack for 11
handleLaunchJVM(): now unregisterApplet 11



and opens up a new java console. And then in that console, the applet runs.


Now, after the applet runs it gives me this beautiful message:

Exception in thread "Thread-17" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
at com.AppletTakesParams.access$0(
at com.AppletTakesParams$







What am i doing wrong with the JNLP? Can someone please help me.

Also i am using the java version 7 update 45.


Please.any help would be appreciated.
