Hello all,

We have a large complicated server framework where we keep getting Desktop heap allocation failure every week. To analyze the problem further, we had setup a smaller simple structure like below

We have a simple Eclipse application - It is a sample application that does nothing but wait for 2 seconds (using Thread. Sleep) and exit.

I have a windows service where I call a batch file that in turn invokes this application in a loop continuously.

This starts to work fine - the Eclipse application gets launched continuously, wait for 2 seconds and exit.

After about 30 minutes or so, I get Desktop Heap allocation failed message from Windows.

Instead of Eclipse application, if I use a windows application that does the same thing I don't see the Desktop heap allocation failure.

I suspect that the resources are not completed released when the Eclipse application exits.

How should I go about fixing this? Any help will be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
