ADT or Eclipse with ADT plugin crashes with out of memory error

Android Developer Tools or Eclipse loading ADT plugin may crash with Out of memory exception. Sometimes ADT or Eclipse may also crash while loading any activity layout xml with the errors shown in below images.



This may happen because you might be having older version of Java SDK installed. Installing the latest version of JDK like 6 or 7 should resolve these errors.

Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'theme' with value '@style/Theme.Dialog').

The error occurs because the style element Theme.Dialog is declared under "android:style".
Your ApplicationManifest.xml may contain code as:     <application
        android:allowBackup="true"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@style/Theme.Dialog">
Update the android:theme attribute as given below, the error will get resolved.     <application
        android:allowBackup="true"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Dialog">
