If you have a flat directory structure (i.e. all entries under the root), JX will try to read the whole thing into memory, parsing the strings etc. as it goes. I'm a little surprised that it would run out of memory if it really has got 512Mb to play with, but I think the java VM defaults to 128Mb (?) and it could well hit that limit. You'd need to run java giving it a bit more memory... however JX performance might still be crippled if it's trying to scroll through a list of 15,000 entries. The problem isn't the size of the directory - JX happily browses multi-million entry databases every day - the problem is how many entries appear at a particular level in the left hand pane; over a thousand or so browsing performance becomes very poor, and java swing begins to creak...

did you write the whole DN of the root user?
I would suggest you use JXPlorer. It´s not only a viewer, you couls also
manage your entities with it. and it´s free:
