64-bit GlassFish, howto, wiki
By alexismp on Jul 24, 2008
If you need to break the 2GB or 4GB heap maximum barrier for your GlassFish-powered application, you can move to a 64-bit JVM. The topic of 64-bit JVM was touched upon here when GlassFish v2 was released. What wasn't explained is what configuration steps it takes.
A recent thread on the GlassFish forum pointed out that this wasn't well documented or at least easily accessible. This FAQ entry on the Wiki tries to fix this. Once you're set with the 64-bit JVM, the GlassFish Performance and Tuning Guide can come handy.
Let us know when you feel important questions are not well documented on the GlassFish wiki FAQ or on the product documentation. You can either add it yourself to the wiki or send us a ping on the Forum. Thanks!
