First of all make sure you define a -Xms and -Xmx range
for your Java options and maybe a properl Young/Perm generation
and ensure you have a proper heap geometry. Then try to
use pmap and check the heap segment if you really suspect a
memory leak.

Example of pmap from a 32bit process:

0808A000      24K   4K rw---    [ heap ]
08090000       4K    - rw---    [ heap ]
08091000       4K   4K rw---    [ heap ]

what java are you using and what version ? What solaris ?

Could it be a bug on your application ? Try to measure 
with pmap the anon segments, these will be your JVM consumed
resources from Heap.
