Recently I ran into this error in my web application:
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space
It's a typical Hibernate/JPA + IceFaces/JSF application running on Tomcat 6 and JDK 1.6.
Apparently this can occur after redeploying an application a few times.
What causes it and what can be done to avoid it?
How do I fix the problem?
