Is there any way of limiting jetty's memory usage? I ps -ef | grep jetty8 gives /usr/lib/jvm/default-java/bin/java -Xmx768m which suggests that there is already a memory limit in use but as I mentioned jetty every now and so often starts using memory way to much so I don't think it's using the limitation.
Chances are it's a memory leak in your code; e.g. ResultSets from a DB query not being closed properly in all cases. If you enable JMX you can use it to take a snapshot of memory usage; IIRC Eclipse has a handy plugin to let you analyse the dump to look for leaks.
