Do you have everything in one big method? If so, you might be collecting
local variables that cannot be GC'd, and so you're essentially leaking

I assume your program is something of the form:

conn = getConnection
ps = conn.prepareSatement
rs = ps.executeQuery

    // Do some stuff

Do you retain any data across each of the loop iterations? For example,
are you keeping an array/map/list/whatever of information around that
includes data from each row? If so, you may be simply running out of
memory. Do you know what the memory settings are for your JVM?
