Subject Re: memory leak in org.mortbay.jetty.servlet.ServletHandler?
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2005 16:17:18 GMT
Hi Greg,
Thanks for the info. The LogFactory's that I saw being leaked were for "
org.apache.geronimo.jetty.JettyClassLoader". I assume it's Geronimo's 
responsibility to clean these up... Geronimo wasn't and 
o.a.g.jetty.JettyWebAppContext was only recently updated to do this (I 
assume that this is the LogFactory.release() that you are referring to...).

Finally, if you are referring to the bug in 
o.m.util.Container.removeComponent(Object) (a bug that I found and David 
Jenks reported), then I can confirm that the problem has been fixed.
