I want to start an embedded tomcat7 instance directly from maven using the tomcat7-maven-plugin. This is working fine, but the Tomcat started doesn't seem to have enough memory. I suspect that I would need to set.


but I can't figure out how to do it.

The documentation says one should use the "systemProperties" element in the "configuration" section of the plugin. However, the options are specified as XML elements and would need to look like that:


But that's of course not possible as it breaks the XML (XX is interpreted as a namespace).

Of course I could get around this problem by setting environment variable


but I would prefer to only increase it for the embedded Tomcat. Any ideas how to do that?

    You can set the properties in this way

        <JAVA_OPTS>-Xms256m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m</JAVA_OPTS>
