Memory Leak

I have an enterprise project where I have to detect memory leaks.I have deployed the application in JBoss and monitored JBoss with jConsole.In the memory graph I see a permanent gradually increase of almost 300 MB.The application ran for 10 hours.No I have to figure out which are the objects have not been dereferenced.I have tried to profile the application with VisualVm by configuring the VM but it crashed.I'm not using any commercial profiler like JProfiler.
Is there any way to detect which objects are actually there in the memory and have not being dereferenced.

I used JProfiler several years ago and if I remember correctly, it did exactly that. I expect it still does.
I agree. Here's the link:
