Subject [classlib] Patch for H-3148 (OOM when using native memory which is out of GC-control)
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2007 13:51:21 GMT

There was a disussion in the mailing list under the "[VM]How to trigue GC
while free native memory is low." and "[VM]take action for native memory
control (was: Re: [VM]How to trigue GC while free native memory is low.)"
topics discussing the problem of freeing native memory in finalizers - see
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.java.harmony.devel/23680 and
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.java.harmony.devel/24014 for example.

Leo Li provided the patch for
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-3148 as it was discussed in the
thread. (Thanks, Leo!)
I've reviewed it and it looks great to me.

There is also http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-2530 JIRA about
memory leak in java.util.zip.Deflater (and i've check that similar problem
exists in java.util.zip.Inflater although there are no JIRA regarding this)
which could be fixed using the facility suggested by Leo's patch after the
integration for 3148.

I think it makes sense to integrate the patch for 3148. Any objections?
Could also someone from committers take care of this?
