OutOfMomory on running Ant build in Eclipse

Running Ant build via Eclipse may throw following error:Error: Java heap space java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
To overcome this error, we need to increase the maximum heap size for JVM.
Complete steps are:
Select Run > External Tools > External Tools Configuration...Select New launch configuration button.Give any suitable name.On "Main" tab, specify build file. For e.g., C:\project1\build.xmlOn "Targets" tab, specify targets and their orders to run.JRE tab, select "Separate JRE:" and specify the JRE installed. In my case it is jdk1.6.0_17.In "VM arguments", add -Xmx500M for 500 MB of heap space.Press Apply button. Press Run or Close button.
