From the Java JRE 1.1.3 documentation:
jre <options> ...
Each Java thread has two stacks: one for Java code and one for C code. The -oss option sets the maximum stack size that can be used by Java code in a thread to x. Every thread that is spawned during the execution of the program passed to jre has x as its Java stack size. The default units for x are bytes. The value of x must be greater than or equal to 1000 bytes.
You can modify the meaning of x by appending either the letter "k" for kilobytes or the letter "m" for megabytes. The default stack size is 400 kilobytes ("-oss 400k").
Other Sun versions may specify this parameter differently. Check the documentation for the version you are running.
