Setting up first project

Hello everybody,
I have my first contact with vaadin and it looked really great (website, book, etc.).
I wanted to create my first own vaadin project within eclipse. Everytime building a new project, I get a “PermGen space” error.
Hopefully someone can help me.

Eclipse Helios 32bit
Snippet of the Eclipse.ini:


interior server within eclipse: apache-tomcat-6.0.32
Vaadin Plugin for Eclipse
Configuration for Apache-server&deployment configuration Servlet (default)
As Vaadin-versions were 6.5.7 and 6.1.1 used.

The PermGen Space problem is caused by the Eclipse+Tomcat combination when you redeploy the application many times.

I start my Eclipse with:

eclipse -Xms 256 -XmX 512 -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+CMSPermGenSweepingEnabled -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled -XX:MaxPermSize=512m

I give the parameters from command-line, but perhaps the ini file works as well.

As mentioned in Pro Account article
