Subject Class loader and garbage collector
Date Mon, 07 Feb 2005 13:39:26 GMT
I've seen that Spring defines a

*org.springframework.web.util.IntrospectorCleanupListener *

which flushes the bean introspector which may hold cached references to 
classes to be garbage collected.

In tomcat 5.5.7, using jconsole, I've seen that using the 
IntrospectorCleanupListener is not enough. The number of loaded classes 
keep increasing when reloading a webapp.
The jconsole only shows the number of loaded classes.
Is there any way to see which classes are still referenced so that I can 
further investigate the problem?
