Do you mean that your (Tomcat-hosted) application is connecting to a
3rd-party application? If they are not running in the same JVM, there
should be no reason that different JVM versions cannot be used. The
3rd-party can use whatever they want (1.4?) while you run a newer version.

Yes. The JVM generally does not request memory from the OS and then give
it back, later. The JVM's memory usage for the Java heap (from the OS's
perspective) will only increase.
