Java "parameters" (commonly known as JVM flags) are set using either option parameters or simple parameters. For maximum and minimum heap sizes, you can use the Xmx and Xms flags like so:

Code: Select all
java -server -Xmx####M -Xms####M -jar craftbukkit.jar


(I also threw in the -server flag, which will induce a slower startup in exchange for better runtime performance).

Simply replace the ####'s with the number of megabytes you wish to add to the task. :)
