Subject 12MB XML >= 500MB RAM?
Date Mon, 06 Nov 2006 21:44:32 GMT

I'm using Axis 1.4.  When I retrieve a 12MB XML file, the Virtual machine
uses more than 500MB (and less than 700).  This sounds a little extreme.
Are there known issues with 1.4?  If I set the -Xmxn flag to much less than
600 an exception is thrown with no message.  When I use -Xmx600m it runs
fine though.

Also, Axis seems to use a JAX parser for its SOAP calls, I think, but I read
on Apache's site that it uses SAX.  Which does 1.4 use?
