This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
This is the only information I have at hand. Could someone please point out possibilities of what is going wrong and what I could do to ammend them? Noticing that many threads are going idle for a long time. Could it be the failure to get rid of them and their eventual piling up that boggling down the JVM? If so, could I do something from a configuration/installation of patch standpoint or would it be more of a fix from the application code?
