Hi,
I am running a Java Web Application in Tomcat. The application uses Quartz framework to schedule the cron job at regular intervals. This cron job involves parsing a 4+ MB xml file, which I am doing using JDOM API. The xml file contains around 3600 nodes to be parsed and consequently data to be updated in DB which I am doing it sequentially.
After parsing almost half of the file, my application throws a Out of Memory Exception. The stack trace of the same is :

This causes even my tomcat to crash. Can you please help me in diagnosing the problem. I even have enabled profiling in the Netbeans for the same but it seems that even that crashed. I have kept the default memory allocated to Tomcat. Is there any memory leak taking place. My DB is postgres and JDK is 1.6.0_15.

Thanks,
Amit

You're simply running out of memory. Therefore, you should check out where you are using a lot of memory in your program, and most importantly, where you are not releasing memory.
