Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1537) Installation on OSX 10.10.2 generates OutOfMemory Error during parser tests
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2015 07:30:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1537?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14300966#comment-14300966

Andrew Hwang commented on TIKA-1537:

Hi Tyler,

I had already tried setting the MAVEN_OPTS environment variable, but it continued to fail.
I did some searching around on Google, and found this from StackOverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4066424/java-lang-outofmemoryerror-java-heap-space-in-maven.
From what I could gather, the maven-surefire-plugin forks a new JVM and the amount of memory
set in MAVEN_OPTS is not passed onto the new JVM.

> I was having issues during installation of Tika 1.7 where the build failed when running
parser tests (specifically on TestChmExtraction). I had set the MAVEN_OPTS variable to have
enough memory (-Xmx2048m), but the build still failed. I turned out that the maven-surefire-plugin
was creating a new JVM that did not have enough specified memory, causing TestChmExtraction
to fail. A fix I found online led me to change the POM for tika-parent (adding an argLine
to maven-surefire-plugin, where -Xmx2048m worked). After adding this, the installation was
able to finish. I will submit a pull request with the addition.
