Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 46221] Leak WebappClassLoader with commons-logging and log4j
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2008 18:44:21 GMT

Using the provided test case I don't see any memory leaks. I do see various
references retained after the web application has been stopped but before it is
restarted / undeployed.

A leak would be when reloads lead to an increase in the number of instances of
a class, typically the webappclassloader, and I don't see that.

Yes, we could do a better job of cleaning up the logger references when the web
application stops but that is more an enhancement than a bug.

I'll set up a separate test for multiple deploy/undeploy to see if I can create
the issue Peter saw.
