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.
Some of my programs that write to a log file will get OutOfMemoryErrors if the log file becomes too big. This seems odd to me, since I assume (ass=u+me) that the java.util.logger does not attempt to keep all previous log entries in memory for the duration fo the JVM, or until the logger is garbage collected. Is this not true? I am using J2SE 1.6.
I can post some code if needed, but I figured this was more of a "why does Java do this" question.
