java.lang.OutOfMemory Exception!

Posted by Kakoli Basu on May 27, 1999 at 4:10 AM

Hello Everybody,
We are facing a problem of java.lang.OutOfMemory Exception.
It happens when we are continuously creating and storing object
in database(ObjectStore). Both our server and client are in java.
And the server is distributed and is exposed to the client through
an idl implemented in CORBA(OrbixWeb 3.0).
We are releasing references whereever needed.
And also calling runFinalizersOnExit(true).
Also, the error does not come when continuously large
objects(containing embedded objects) is stored in the same database
with objects formed only through jdk.
Any suggestions for the problem/where to look for the solution?
Is explicit running of garbage collector recommended(since the
article says that the design should not be such that it should
depend on the frequency at which the garbage collector runs)? If
explicitly run,can the running of java gc be speeded up?(i.e.,
can we decrease the interval at which it searches as to what to
garbage collect).
