As mentioned by others, you are indeed using HttpSolrClient
incorrectly.  Even so, the fact that this code causes OOM does indicate
that *something* is leaking in your environment.

I could not reproduce the leak.  I tried the above code loop in some
test code (as a testcase in the branch_5x code) and could not get it to
OOM orshow any evidence of a leak.  I let it run for ten minutes on a
512MB heap, which produced this jconsole memory graph:

That memory graph does not look like a program with a memory leak. 
Here's the test code that I was running -- specifically, the
testFullClient() method:

What versions of the dependent jars do you have in your project?  There
might be something leaking in a dependency rather than within SolrJ.

I also set up a test program using SolrJ 5.2.1, with updated
dependencies beyond the versions included with SolrJ, and could not get
that to show a leak either.
