I have a t1.micro amazon instance and that machine have very scarce resources. I need for the moment to run glassfish3.1.1 (due to complete JEE6 support) on those conditions. Any guidance is welcome.

Using the default configuration (-Xmx512m) jvm halts at bootstrap since the SO have only ~ 620MB of total ram.
