May 24, 2012 · heap java memory

What's in a name?

Why choose such a cryptic and obscene (well, close to) name, you may ask. The answer is simple: i kept on forgetting this simple java memory setting always. As a software engineer prominently working on java/j2ee technologies one would certainly come across java memory setting and heap errors. Even after years of such errors, i used to always forget the exact settings and people would say thing such as “what kind of java developer are you?“.

Enough was enough and i decided to get rid of a java-programmer-who-does-not-know-memory-settings tag. And this website’s name is my pretty lame solution.
