Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-791) Memory leak in

Memory leak in

                 Key: IVY-791
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-beta-2
            Reporter: Archie Cobbs

In an attempt is made to create a "canconical instance" cache like {{String.intern()}}
using this static field:

private static final Map/*<ModuleRevisionId, ModuleRevisionId>*/ CACHE = new WeakHashMap();
This doesn't work: each entry is both a key and a value, so the strong reference to the key
will never allow the weak reference to the value to be the only remaining reference, and so
entries will never be dropped.

You have to wrap the keys in a WeakReference.

See [Classpath's implementation of String.intern()|]
for an example.
