Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Changing the Stack Size

Is it possible in Java to increase an application's stack size?

The stack size of an application can be set at run time depending on the virtual machine you are using. Sun JDK 1.3 supports a non-standard option that can be set when you execute the java command to alter the default thread stack size.

The -Xss flag accepts an argument indicating the size of the stack in bytes. For example,

java -Xss1024k
would set the default thread stack size to one megabyte.
