Tomcat occupying high CPU

I have an application running on tomcat 5.5. After 2-3 days tomcat start occupying very high CPU and application becomes unresponsibe. I have told it seems there is some sun native method which is being called unwantedly and threads are not being closed. I am attaching application thread dump over here. Can someone please take a look at this and advise what is actually happening with the application.

I feel, its typical symptom of GC running aggressively. You can check
the following:
1. Enable gc logging, by adding "-verbose:gc -Xloggc:gc.log" to startup
2. Take a thread-dump when the application is not responding, analyze it
and see which thread is eating up CPU.

Abobe attached thread dump has been taken while application was not responding. Can you please check and see if there is anything suspicious ?
I'm attaching GC data as well taking at that time when application stopped responding

a lot of threads waiting for this lock

      at java.beans.Introspector.findExplicitBeanInfo(
      - waiting to lock <0x0000002a9cfd4e60> (a java.lang.Class)

start with looking up what is holding the lock

full gc's are taking 5 secs so may be worth looking at a more incremental strategy

Anyone has any idea on details of this method.

What should be more incremental strategy ?
worry more about the thread thats holding the lock they are waiting on.

Can you help me finding root cause for this ?
pretty busy at the moment but i can try and steer you in the right direction

Anyhelp will be appreciated. Anyone else has any idea what should I do ?
Can someone please advise what below monitor thread is pointing towards.

  at java.beans.Introspector.findExplicitBeanInfo(
sorry I don't understand the question
In attached thread dump maximum threads are waiting for below method.

at java.beans.Introspector.findExplicitBeanInfo(
      - waiting to lock <0x0000002a9cfd4e60> (a java.lang.Class)

What does this mean ? Can someone tell me what does it lead to and in which type of issue / bug / leak could be. Any help to sort this issue ?
its waiting to lock the specified object
it cannot because some other thread has that object locked
search the thread dump for all references of that object and see which is holding the lock
