I did. I got no answer. 
I found it out though. The current design of fop is not memory usage
transparent, and if you use one page-sequence in the document, the hole
thing is held in memory till the end.

However, what does tomcat do after the "service" method returns? The
Servlet interface has a "destroy" method, is it used? Why doesn't Tomcat
release the servlet instance? Can anyone explain the reason?
