Some RGB fade arduino code
View fade_complex.ino
* Code for cross-fading 3 LEDs, red, green and blue (RGB)
* To create fades, you need to do two things:
* 1. Describe the colors you want to be displayed
* 2. List the order you want them to fade in
* A color is just an array of three percentages, 0-100,
* controlling the red, green and blue LEDs

A million ways to change HEAP memory in Java

Xmx vs Xms

Remember, Xmx corresponds to max heap and Xms corresponds to starting heap. It can be an optimization to set these equal.

In Spring Boot build.gradle

bootRun {
      jvmArgs = ['-Xmx1g']
