System Requirements
1. Java J2SE 1.5.0 or greater, and a platform that supports it

2. Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (Galileo or Ganymede), which is platform-specific

   -- Get Eclipse from http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/

3. Geronimo server (1.1.x, 2.0.x, 2.1.x or 2.2)

   -- Get a Geronimo server from http://geronimo.apache.org/downloads.html

You will likely need to increase the default setting for maximum PermGen size
for your Eclipse installation (especially for Sun's JDK 1.5.0_x on the Windows
platform) to prevent "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen" errors. From the
command line you can use:

        eclipse -vmargs -Xms128m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m

Or you can edit your eclipse.ini file. An example is shown below but remember
that each argument has to be on seperate lines:
