How to solve java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space error

Question


I am working in real time project.

Working: I am getting data from twitter and moving the output to cassandra database and then using Testrestfull webservice i am getting the output in json format. And then finally outputs are displayed in wep page. i am using glass fish server to connect web service and web page. it is an real time project so i am refreshing my page in every 5 second.

First few seconds i am not getting any error it works fine after 5 to 10 minutes i am getting this error in glass fish server.

Error: WARNING: StandardWrapperValve[genric.ApplicationConfig]: Servlet.service() for servlet genric.ApplicationConfig threw exception java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

I dont know why i am getting this error and how to solve this. Can any one help me.

This is my webservice code:

public String gettweets(String st)
{
 cluster=Cluster.builder().addContactPoint("localhost").build();    
 session=cluster.connect("space");
 String query ="select * from tweet_count where createdtime='"+st+"' allow filtering;";
 ResultSet result = session.execute(query);
 String text = "[";
 for(Row r : result){
    System.out.println(r.getString("tag_name"));
   text+="{\""+"x"+"\":\""+r.getString("tag_name")+"\",\""+"y"+"\":\""+r.getInt("count")+"\"},";

}
text=text.substring(0,text.length()-1);
text+="]";

    return text;
}

This is my web page code:

Answer


An OOM or OOME (OutOfMemoryError) simply means that the JVM ran out of memory. When this occurs, you basically have 2 choices:

  1. Allow the JVM to use more memory using the -Xmx VM argument. For instance, to allow the JVM to use 1 GB (1024 MB) of memory:
  2. Improve/Fix the application so that it uses less memory.
