Burp Suite is a Java application and is distributed via native platform installers. However, Burp is also available as a standalone Java executable file, with the .jar extension. You can choose to download the JAR file from the same download page as the native platform installers. Various command line arguments are available to control Burp's behavior on startup. For example, you can tell Burp to prevent reloading of extensions, open a particular Burp project file, or load a particular configuration file. -Xmx4g Limit Burp's heap size to 4GB, for example. You can change this to a different value if you want. - https://portswigger.net/burp/documentation/desktop/troubleshooting/launch-from-command-line
