Java Error when running .sh file in AIX platform


I am trying to open Oracle Warehouse Builder (10g) Design Center in AIX platform using the command ./ When I execute, I am getting the below error.

The JVM option is invalid: -XX: MaxPermSize=256M. Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.

Any resolution guidance for the above issue would be much helpful.

Thanks !!!

Can you show the code lines in ./ that have the line with -XX: MaxPermSize=256M in it? Use code tags when posting the code, thanks.
I am not sure if removing the blank between -XX: and Max... might make a difference.

According to the documentation Java HotSpot VM Options it should look like this:

Thanks for your reply. Yes, you are right. There shouldn't be any space between them. Here are the code fragments of file.
eval `cat`
cd ../admin
PLATF=`/bin/uname -s`
if [ "$PLATF" != "OSF1" ] ; then
$JAVAPATH/bin/java -Xms64M -Xmx768M $MAXPERMSIZE -Dlimit=768M -Dsun.java2d.font.DisableAlgorithmicStyles=true -DORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_HOME -DOWBCC_HOME=$ORACLE_HOME -DOCM_HOME=$ORACLE_HOME -DOCM_ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_HOME -DORCLCWM_META_MODEL_FILE=../../bridges/admin/orcl_cwm.xml -DTCLLIBPATH="$TCLLIBPATH" $CLASSPATH_LAUNCHER oracle.wh.ui.framework.StaticLoader $*
cd ../unix

This has perhaps nothing to do with your problem but this part of the script hurt my eyes so much i had to answer.

First: if you are not definitely, absolutely, genuinely 101% sure you need eval - don't use it. In your case this line (i suppose you want to set some environment) can be done this way:

. /path/to/

Do yourself a favour and ALWAYS use absolue pathes in scripts! This way you do not depend on the script being called from a certain directory. This:

cd ../admin

will probably work when you call the script your usual way (perhaps like ./ from a certain directory), but will fail when you call it from somewhere else, like this:

$ cd /some/where/else
$ /absolute/path/to/

And, finally:

PLATF=`/bin/uname -s`

stay away from backticks! They are deprecated and their usage is strongly discouraged. Do it this way:

PLATF=$(/bin/uname -s)

which will do the same in a more reliable, POSIX-compatible, modern and fashionable way. And i guarantee you will be rich, famous and of everlasting health if you can convince 5 others to also stay away from the backticks. ;-)

I hope this helps.
