WebApplicationContext and OutOfMemory??

New to spring, My web app appears unstable with notorious OutOfMemory Exception

What I see in the log is like this:

INFO: Closing Spring root WebApplicationContext

INFO: Shutting down Log4J

and then OutOfMemoryException

Why did Spring Close the web app context?? is there a kind of timer or listener??

any insight really appreciated

thanks all

What are you doing when the OutOfMemoryError is thrown? Anything specific?

The log messages about shutting down Spring and Log4J may be *due* to the OutOfMemoryError being thrown and not what's *causing* it - the error may have killed the application, causing them to fire some kind of shutdown process - before bubbling up to a level which caused it to be printed out.

I agree. Here's the link:
