Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4543) EAR classloader not garbage collected
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2009 13:36:50 GMT


Janko Heilgeist commented on GERONIMO-4543:

Java6 says "Please use CMSClassUnloadingEnabled in place of CMSPermGenSweepingEnabled in the
future" if it is started with "-XX:+CMSPermGenSweepingEnabled"  so I stopped using this option

I'll admit that this report is not a major issue. I just discovered the leaks when I debugged
an application. They haven't caused any real problems yet.

> The TransactionTimer$CurrentTime thread inherits the AccessControlContext of the first
EAR/WAR/EJB-jar that carries out a transaction. Thus, the particular EAR/WAR/EJB-jar's classloader
is prevented from being GCed.
