Subject Release of memory
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2003 16:02:35 GMT
Hi, I have a servlet that is generating reports on demand from a client
program. I'm using tomcat as servlet container, xml and xsl to generate
fo and fop to give me pdf. The reports tend to be big and memory is
being exhausted.

Can anyone tell me how to make tomcat release memory after a servlet is
finished? Now tomcat simply hold it and sooner or later my server starts
to swap processes because of it. It does so even if I force GC at the
end of the servlet. If it is left idle, it frees some over time, but it
takes to long.

Please help!
