You'll need to examine the heap and try to determine what the objects are that are consuming
so much space.  The jhat tool that comes with a Sun/Oracle JDK is useful for this:

There are also numerous profilers that will help with heap analysis; YourKit is a favorite,
but it's not free.  Google will help you find the free ones besides jhat.
