RimuHosting recently realigned their middle to high-end VPS plans in their Dallas data center to give more memory for a cheaper price, so I submitted a ticket to switch to a MiroVPS 3 with 224M of RAM and doubled the disk. I'm even saving $6 in the end.
The extra RAM is great for JBoss.
To alleviate an OutOfMemoryError: heap space error I had occasionally seen, my current JBoss settings are:
-server -Xms50m -Xmx50m -XX:ThreadStackSize=96 -Xss96k -XX:+UseParallelGC -XX:+PrintGCDetails -XX:+PrintGCTimeStamps -verbose:gc -XX:-TraceClassUnloading
