Re: ZoneView or ways of dealing with large objects?

Hi all.

I've got a program which displays potentially very large files. Files
larger than 250k or so cause Java to run out of memory. I'm building a
bigger view based on the file (converting binary to hex) so this view
object just over one megabyte when the JVM poops out.

Is there some standard way of dealing with this? I'm looking at ZoneView,
but there are really no instructions or examples available. Does anyone
have a pointer to one? What about any kind of View, I haven't been able
to locate any of those either.

I'm probably going to implement this manually because I only have one
scrollbar to worry about, but I'd like to extend my knowledge of Java so
any help you can give would be great.

    Are you sure this is where the problem lies? I've written Java programs
which load text files in the hundreds of megabytes into memory without too
much trouble (assuming I give Java enough memory, e.g. with
"-vmargs -Xms256m -Xmx512m"). Are you developing on a memory constrained
