Thanks Peter!  Can you provide an example please?   Is this defined somewhere in the server.xml

> java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space

Although your Java virtual machine has enough memory allocated to it,
something (probably the number of classes being loaded, or the number of
times you're reloading the webapp) is causing the permanent generation
to fill up.  This holds class files, for example.  PermGen defaults to
64 Mbytes, no matter how much heap space is allocated to Java.

Increase the memory allocated to PermGen using eg. -XX:MaxPermSize=128m
to double it.
