    Wildfly inhibits -XX:OnOutOfMemoryError handler

    William Darby Newbie

      I am trying to specify the out of memory handler for my Wildfly instance, but it appears that the OutOfMemory exception is being suppressed by the Wildfly runtime, in this case an EJB, prevent the JVM from performing the action. Below is an abbreviated exception stack from an OutOfMemoryError while processing an EJB. It appears this is converted into a javax.ejb.EJBException, logged and dismissed.


      Is it possible to allow Out Of Memory exceptions to propagate to the JVM so the OutOfMemory handler is invoked, or is there another option in Wildfly for configuring a similar error handler?


      Thanks for any suggestions
