java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space - Cause and Solution

The error was (in maven):
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space

If you build with maven:
MAVEN_OPTS="-Xms512m -Xmx768m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m"
JAVA_OPTS="-Xms512m -Xmx768m"

If you use other tools, check their OPTS configuration - may be there is analogue.

linux: Searching in command history

This is a great trick for everyone who uses linux console a lot.

1. Ctrl+R in console
2. Enter search string
3. OS suggests you a line from command history
4. If you want an older command with same search string, just hit Ctrl+R.
5. that's all folks

EJBCA with jboss

EJBCA 4.07 supports jBoss version 5.1 but not jboss 6.0 or jboss 7.0. I checked with jboss web profile and with full version too.

The error message is in ant command

ant bootstrap

The error was:

"package javax.ejb does not exist"

So how i resolved it? I returned to jboss 5.1. :(
