Content Server Throwing OutOfMemoryError Exception With JDK 1.6

(Doc ID 1316760.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 10.1.3.5.0 and later
IBM S/390 Based Linux (31-bit)

Symptoms

Using Content Server 10.1.3.5.1 (091230) (Build:7.2.4.42) 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.
