Standard heap memory size (of Applets) too low

      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      If running applets you can not allocate arrays with a length greater of ca. 55 MB due to the 64 MB limit of the heap memory in standard config (which is not changeable from the applet programmer). This violates the backward compliancy to Java 1 Machines (Microsoft Java Machine) of the year 1999.


      JUSTIFICATION :
      Multimedia webapplets with preloading of longer media sources dont' work with the Java Version 1.6.10. Instead they work with a Java Machine of 1999 (Microsoft Java Machine)

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Java Applets running the current Java Version 1.6.10, which are able to preload sources with a higher size of 64 MB, so that the applets works like on 10 yeart old Microsoft Java Machines.
      ACTUAL -
      Java Applets running the current Java Version 1.6.10 aren't able to preload sources with a higher size of 64 MB due to an antique heapsize memory size value.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      // Insert following code into an applet
      .........................
      int[] test;

      test = new int [65000000];
      .....................
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      No found
