Content Server Throwing OutOfMemoryError Exception With JDK 1.6
Last updated on FEBRUARY 05, 2018
Applies to:Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 10.1.3.5.0 and later
IBM S/390 Based Linux (31-bit)
Using Content Server 10.1.3.5.1 (091230) (Build:126.96.36.199) on linux-s390, accessing a DB2 database
After upgrading from JDK 1.5 to JDK 1.6, Content Server crashes with OutOfMemoryError exceptions after a few hours of uptime.
The problem does not exist with JDK 1.5 and the same version of Content Server. However, JDK 1.6 is needed because it is a requirement for the new db2-driver ('9.7 db2jcc4.jar'). This driver only works with JDK 1.6.
Following environments have been tested:
- JDK 1.5 + db2 9.5 db2jcc.jar. Result: no error
- JDK 1.6 + db2 9.5 db2jcc.jar. Result: OutOfMemoryError
- JDK 1.6 + db2 9.7 db2jcc4.jar. Result: OutOfMemoryError
