When running java in a container, the max heap should always be explicitly set with -Xmx, based on the application needs and the container limits.

Java max heap limit can also be calculated based on the container limits.

Generic script that correlates JVM memory settings to the container limits: https://github.com/fabric8io-images/run-java-sh, https://github.com/fabric8io-images/run-java-sh/blob/master/fish-pepper/run-java-sh/fp-files/run-java.sh.
