I am using JDK1.3. When run my application using JDK, I find a gc.log file was generated with the following information:
Needed to allocate blacklisted block at 0x5d63000.
Anyone know what it means. I DOUBT it is something regarding garbage collection. Is this suggest a memory leak?

Are you using a kind of -verbose option on the java line?
