>         Attachments: BundleProtectionDomain.java.FELIX-1170.patch
> There is a memory leak caused by a strong reference from the BundleProtectionDomain to
a bundle and Felix.
> The problem is that a URLClassLoader gets its AccessControlContext from the stack - AccessController.getContext()
calls AccessController.getStackAccessControlContext() which is basically arbitrary at the
> In our case we have a ServletFilter plugin that is being loaded by Felix. When a JasperLoader
(a URLClassLoader) is created to load a JSP it inherits the BundleProtectionDomain as part
of its AccessControlContext. If we later shut down Felix, it cannot be GC'd due to this reference.
> For our purposes we have tested making the m_felix and m_bundle weak references and have
verified that it does indeed fix the problem.
