Symptoms


On Oracle Application Server installations based on SunOS 5.10 (Solaris 10), when the OC4J component is using JDK 1.4.2 (or JDK 1.5, noting its only certified with 10.1.3), sometimes the OC4J JVM process takes lot of CPU, causing long response times and impacting the system performance.

NOTE: This problem might not be exclusive of Oracle Application Server 10gR2 or 10gR3, indeed whatever component that runs in an Java VM might suffer of this (Oracle Secure Enterprise Search, EBS, or many others that run their components made in Java).
