I have only really seen this error when there is something like an infinite loop which is results in the creation of a large number of object instances. I'd have a good look at the JSP code, suggest that you post it's contents here if it's not too large. If it is large then try commenting out various bits of the JSP to see which sections make it fail. HTH Andy Bowes

Upping the initial heap size and maximum heap size for Tomcat can give you more memory than the default, whose numbers I forget. I changed them when I ran into occasional out of memory errors. I haven't run into them again but since they only occurred once a month or so and since I only made the change a month or so ago it's a little too early to tell if it worked. But if the jsp throws out of memory errors every time it's run then I'd guess there's something wrong in the code, as others have sugggested.
