This might be true if you are using intrinsically 32-bit platforms, but the
JVMs for higher-end platforms and Big Iron can usually can do 64-bit
addressing internally. While JVMs run in 32-bit mode by default, some of
the JVMs for 64-bit platforms (e.g. Compaq and IBM) have a switch that
allows you to fly past the 32-bit memory addressing limit.
