Java out of memory exception only on my machine


I am working on project that is around 4 years old, and has been succesfully building on jenkins and on other programmer’s machines, and is currently building properly on those machines. On mine, it throws a java.lang.OutOfMemoryError. Our (very large) project is set to run with 2 gigs of memory on the java virtual machine. I increased it to 4 and then to 6 gigs, and it still ran out of memory.

Seeing as I am the only person affected by this, I appear to be in some sort of bad state and I was wondering what the common steps are to get out of these sorts of states.
