Getting out of memory issue after updating buildToolsVersion '23.0.1' in Android studio

I am getting out of memory issue very often after updating

buildToolsVersion '22.0.1'
to
buildToolsVersion '23.0.1'
I am really confused and dont know how to solve this issue, since this error showing only with
buildTools
version
23.0.1
. Whereas it is working fine when I change it to
22.0.1
. Please help me. I am posting the error which I am getting as follows,

Uncaught translation error: java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

}
buildTypes {

minifyEnabled false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
}
}
}

dependencies {

compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.0.1'
compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:23.0.1'
compile 'com.android.support:design:23.0.0'
compile 'com.android.support:cardview-v7:23.0.1'

compile 'com.android.support:palette-v7:23.0.1'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:7.5.0'
}


Thanks in advance.

Answer

Add this to your android closure in your build.gradle file:

dexOptions {
    javaMaxHeapSize "4g"
}

Android Studio Google jar causing GC overhead limit exceeded error
