    Richfaces build java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: unable to create

    Sam Elstob Newbie

      Hi all

      A heads up on building RichFaces on some Linux systems.

      I was getting the following error when building

      java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: unable to create new native thread

      in some of the JUnit tests e.g.

      org.ajax4jsf.resource.ResourceServiceThreadsTestCase

      This is NOT an out of memory error. The test case above creates 1000 threads and in my Fedora 9 system the per user thread limit is 1024 by default.

      simply change the limit before running the build and all is well

      ulimit -u 2048
      mvn install
