If I omit the -Xmxn option from the Java command line then a default value will be used. According to Java documentation

"the default value is chosen at runtime based on system configuration"

What system configuration settings influence the default value?

On Windows, you can apply the subsequent command to find out the defaults on the system wherever your applications run.

java -XX:+PrintFlagsFinal -version | findstr HeapSize

Watch for the opportunities MaxHeapSize (for -Xmx) and InitialHeapSize for -Xms.

On a Unix/Linux system, you can make

java -XX:+PrintFlagsFinal -version | grep HeapSize

I think the resulting product is in bytes.
