Subject Recovery from OutOfMemoryError?
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2007 16:43:58 GMT
Our Tomcat-based app suffers from occasional OutOfMemoryErrors.  We have
found that we need to manually restart Tomcat when these happen;
frequently the Tomcat process appears to be working after the error, but
is actually crippled in one way or another by the loss of some key


We would very much like to trigger an automated Tomcat restart when an
OOME occurs.  Does anyone have suggestions on the cleanest, safest way
to arrange this?  (We're running Tomcat as a normal process under Linux,
if that matters.)
