Converting Large StarTeam Databases to Surround SCM
Note: This information only applies to Surround 2008.1 and earlier.
The conversion fails when you convert large StarTeam databases to Surround SCM. A large database typically has 150,000 or more files and can include numerous views and repositories.
The StarTeam to Surround SCM conversion utility is written using the COM interface provided by Borland. The COM interface is a wrapper around the StarTeam SDK, which is written in Java. As a result, the application loads a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) during runtime.
A large number of views, repositories, and files are examined during the conversion. The conversion fails if there is not enough available heap space for the JVM to use.
Configure the JVM to use additional heap space. For example, Sun’s JVM sets the maximum heap value to 64MB on the Windows platform (by default). This value may not be enough for a particular project and the conversion may fail.
Following are the steps to specify a heap value:
Note: Additional optimizations and settings can be configured for the JVM. See the JVM's documentation for available options.
