I have one ear with size 140MB and has been deployed in jboss 3.2.5.and
This ear contains files from 20 different modules. So i planned to split ear in to multiple war file in the following manner.
one main.ear contains main.jar and main.war.
Jar contains my EJB classes ( Number of EJB classes are very less in my application ). war file contains other common files and common jsp files.
seperate module jar files with following.
java classes of the particular module
pre-compiled Jsp files of the module jsp.( Since jsp's are pre compiled these entries will go to web.xml)
main.war will be having servlets entries of all the pre-compiled jsp's. The count comes around 6000. All these module jar files and ear is put in to deploy folder.But when I deploy it , it is found that jboss is taking 200MB more memory than the previous one.But still i am having 350 MB free memory in the system. And When I take the applet in jboss web-console memory usage increases gradually and finally throws outofmemeory error. But in the case of single ear this applet works well.
Any help is appreciated.
thanks & regards
