What is the minimum amount of diskspace a CentOS system, plus the java virtual machine, needs to be installed?
Desktop interface is not needed.
4 GB should be sufficient for /. Add another 4 GB for /var. So in sum 8 GB should be enough (I use no swapspace).
That`s what I use as standard for our virtual CentOS 5 machines. They normally never hit the 80% mark in that setup.
If you use Fedora's AOS kickstart then you can get it down to under 500MB or so.
Required, but never shown
