Weblogic, Java and the Garbage Collector. . . Memory Leak?
Posted on 2003-10-22
We are using weblogic server(6.1) and jdk 1.3.1 for our web application. Java Garbage Collector is not cleaning unused memory even the memory usage is more than 90%. We need to do "force to garbage collection" for every day. The memory usage goes down most of the time once a "force to garbage collection" is done. We believe it to be a memory leak, but can not find the error in the code. I saw that someone else had posted a similiar question, so I know that we are not alone with this issue. Any suggestions in where to look or how to stop the issue would be greatly appreciated!
Note : outofmemoryexception error is received in the application if we don't do the "force to garbage collection".
