I'm having problems releasing memory using jython with java objects.
I have an infinite loop where I read in XML files from a directory, process
the XML files using XSLT to create new XML files in another directory. I
then wait x number of seconds (in this case 1 hour) before checking for more
files to be processed.
I've seen cases where my program will use around 500meg of memory if it
processes a larger XML file (around 100meg), but during future file
processing it holds onto the 500meg for much smaller XML file processing
(less than 1meg).
I've tried using the del keywork for my java objects, and I've also tried
calling java.lang.System.gc() without success at releasing the memory.
Here are the java classes I'm using.
java.util.Properties (to read from properties file for configuration)
javax.xml.transform.stream.StreamSource for the XML input, output, and XSLT
javax.xml.transform.Transformer.newTransformer() for XSLT.
