We have written an application that is running on WAS 4.0.4
As the week goes on, it gets slower and slower, the performance gets worse and worse.
If we reset Websphere, the application runs quickly again.
I doubt that Websphere is to blame, so I guess our application is leaving something lying around each time it is closed.
Can anyone offer any hints as to what kind of things I should be looking for?
Cheers.

Check the memory usage of your app server. Maybe there is sort of memory leak in your app, as time goes by, it mounts more and more memory of your machine.

Seems like you might have a memory leak in your application. You might want to check out the memory usage of your system. You can also use any performance monitoring tool to gather this and more data, if you have one available on hand. Easier still you can enable verbose gc for your application and get a lot more meaningful information.
