I'm using the Unix "xep" shell script and not the Windows batch file, but
presumably they work in a similar way.

First, I edited my xep script, adding the -Xmx[...] line below:

"$JAVA_HOME/bin/java" \
        -classpath "$CP" \
        -Xmx150000000 \
        "-Dcom.renderx.xep.CONFIG=$XEP_HOME/xep.xml" \
        com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver "$@"

Obviously the next time I upgrade XEP I'll need to recustomize the script

I then call xep like this:

    xep -quiet -fo source.fo -pdf result.pdf

The -quiet shuts xep up a bit. Errors still get displayed.

I don't know how you'd make Java write errors to a file. Presumably you're
running it all interactively from a "Windows Command Prompt"? If you are,
you should just be able to scroll back to see all the errors.
