APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When customer redeploying applications, they ran into native
    OOM. com/ibm/ws/runtime/component/JavaCompContextMgrImpl.ecmdMap
    is a static variable when indirectly referencing the websphere
    CompoundClassLoader. The CCL is the application classloader in
    WebSphere. This prevents the CCL being unloaded and holding a
    lot of native storage. This static variable should have been
    cleared when the application is stopped.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V6.1.0 and V8.0.                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: An OutOfMemoryError may occur when      *
    *                      applications are repeatedly installed   *
    *                      and uninstalled on the server without   *
    *                      restarting.                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The entry in the ecmdMap variable in the class
    JavaCompContextMgrImpl corresponding to an application
    is not cleared when that application is uninstalled. This
    entry has a reference to the application classloader resulting
    in a classloader leak.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modifications have been made to enable the removal of the
    corresponding entry from the ecmdMap during the stop of an
    application. This will ensure that stopped application
    classloaders are not referenced from ecmdMap entries.
    
    APAR PM35561 is currently targeted for inclusion in Service
    Level (Fix Pack) 6.1.0.41 of WebSphere Application Server V6.1.
    and Fix Pack 8.0.0.2 of WebSphere Application Server V8.0.
    
    Sysroute APAR PM47648 will be used to deliver this fix in
    WebSphere Application Server V7.0.
