The Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is a software development tool that runs on the Java virtual machine. The Java virtual machine assigns a chunk of memory called the heap to Eclipse. If this heap is too small for your particular needs, Eclipse may begin to behave strangely and could crash. It is best to increase the heap size to avoid any unnecessary problems. If Eclipse has crashed due to a "OutOfMemoryErrors," increasing heap size helps to prevent these annoying errors.
