Unable to execute dex: GC overhead limit exceeded in Eclipse

When I downloaded the Git project OsmAnd and went to compile it,
Eclipse returned these errors:

[Dex Loader] Unable to execute dex: GC overhead limit exceeded
[OsmAnd] Conversion to Dalvik format failed:
Unable to execute dex: GC overhead limit exceeded


Google and Stackoverflow said that I must change
-Xms40m
-Xmx384m
in
eclipse.ini
.
Conversion to Dalvik format failed: Unable to execute dex: Java heap space.

I cleaned project and restarted Eclipse, but it did not help.

I found this link: Tips for Android developer: “Conversion to Dalvik format failed: Unable to execute dex: null”
But I do not know which
.jar
from my project to change the input in.
If anyone can help, I can send the project to them.

Answer

It can be fixed by changing the VM values in Eclipse.ini. Set the values to 512 and 1024 as below:

openFile
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
512M
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
-Xms512m
-Xmx1024m
