Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2357) Thread Local memory leaks on restart
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2011 15:20:05 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-2357:

The offending piece of code is in org.apache.solr.schema.DateField:
  private final static ThreadLocalDateFormat fmtThreadLocal
    = new ThreadLocalDateFormat(new ISO8601CanonicalDateFormat());

How can we avoid that Tomcat complains about the possible memory leak? finalize() won't work
for final variables.
