Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1379) PermGen leak

Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-1379:
----------------------------------------

bq. I'm partial to finalize()s that complain at you with a warning that you didn't release
the resource properly.

I like that.  It does not break existing code, but encourages users to call the new close()
method.

> Under version 1.3.7 we are using the following code to initialize a cloudbase connection
during initialization of our web app:
>                         ZooKeeperInstance instance = new ZooKeeperInstance(instanceName,
zooKeepers);
>                         connector = instance.getConnector(userId, password.getBytes());
> The problem is that under the hood, this call creates several threads that are not cleaned
up when the app is undeployed in JBoss. This is occurring without performing any scans or
interacting with cloudbase in any other way. After relatively few redeploys of the app, the
PermGen Space is OOM.
> I can't find any reference in the cloudbase API akin to a close() method for the Connector
object. This is a classloader leak effecting any webapp that is accessing cloudbase directly.
The result of this leak is not simply orphaned threads, but thousands of classes not gc'd
because the classloader itself can't be gc'd. This is what is filling up PermGen.
