Java can have memory leaks just as easily as C can, but if the app is 
standalone, it will release them when the app closes and the JRE shuts 

I have killed tomcat more than once with memory leaks, so it's easy to 
do.  I'm not the expert that Chuck and Mark T are, but here is my 
understanding of what happens:  if the app is running under tomcat, the 
JRE never shuts down since tomcat is using it.  That means the JRE can 
not free up memory that your app has left allocated, as it would be able 
to in a standalone app.  So your Tomcat app has to clean up after itself 
because there is nothing else that can do so.
