|Re: [equinox-dev] Strange Heap overflow with Luna M3|
I have not tried out the scenario, but it looks similar to bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=421706 which was causing an explosion in the felix resolver for the number of solutions (Candidates) that are being tried to find a consistent class space. It would be interesting if you could try this against one of the latest I-Builds.
I think we've met an interesting issue in Equinox/Felix while preparing migration of JBoss Tools to Luna. In some circumstances, the target application will flood the Heap by adding and retaining many org.apache.felix.resolver.Candidates in the main Thread.
This error doesn't seem to happen when starting Eclipse SDK, memory seems fine. However, we reproduce it everytime we use our target-platform, which contains Luna M3 + some additional stuff.
We're tracking the issue here: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBIDE-15807 , but I start to believe that we're facing a potential bug in Equinox/Felix. So I'd be glad if you could give some hints.
Here are the steps In order to reproduce it:
* Get the following target platform in your workspace https://github.com/jbosstools/jbosstools-target-platforms/blob/4.40.x/jbosstools/multiple/jbosstools-multiple.target
* Enable this target platform
* Try to run Eclipse workbench (using this target platform).
