Subject Re: need info about memory leak in axis
Date Thu, 25 Mar 2004 19:01:16 GMT
I upgraded to jdk1.4.2_04 and am still getting the same results ~32K leak 
per message.
The leak happens only when a request is made. If requests are not made , no 
memory leak.
We don't cache anthing from the response to the request, so our code is not 
the source of the leak.
Does anybody have any other suggestions?
