    Garbage collection and unit testing

    John Lukar Newbie

      Hi ,

      I am doing " new TreeCacheAOP()" followed but tree.start() and then after a unit testMethod runs, doing a tree.remove("/") followed by tree.stop().

      I do this for every testMethod in my performance benchmarking test case.

      This results in major memory consumption and full GC kicking in even when I thrwo a Gig at the test which subsequently results in my benchmark numbers getting thrown off.

      Is there a way to ensure TreeCacheAOP gets fully cleaned out after the end of each testMethod invocation.

      I would hate to break up my tests and run them in different VM's.

      any other suggestions? thanks
