OFSAA Model Upload Process Not Releasing Java Memory (Doc ID 1625106.1)

Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA) Infrastructure, version 7.3.2.x, when you run an incremental data model upload, the model upload process does not release all of the Java Heap memory it uses.  As a result, there is less memory available on the server after a data model upload.  You feel this causes the model upload to hang and run out of memory after multiple model upload when you find the following error in the model upload log:

Additionally, the following error is output to the nohup.out in $FIC_APP_HOME/common/FICServer/bin:

As a result of these errors, the model upload process will hang for awhile and then fail, causing significant delay to data model maintenance.
