Kevan, you are the greatest :-))
Situation before  -XX:MaxPermSize=256m, out of memory all the time
Situation using -XX:MaxPermSize=256m, no more out of memory. This also
worked for me in tomcat

But what is actually happening ???

My gues is that My app didn't fit in mem or garbage collection hadn't enough
time to do it's job. By increasing the permSize I have more time to do
garbage collection before I run out of memory... Is this correct ?

Any way, thanks again !
