i have a possible memory leak problem and hope there´s somebody who can help me out there. Following problem: we have a text-file containing data which should be imported into our database. This import will be done by a session bean parsing the file, creating an entity-bean for each row of this file, and after importing all lines old and outdated beans will be removed. This import works fine, the removal, too. The new entries are in the database, the old ones were deleted. But each import of this file (the about 250 rows-file will be imported every minute) leads to an increase in memory used of about 200-500 KB. Calling the garbage collection over the Agent-View does not seem to do anything.
