-------------------------------------

Thanks For the update Andreas Veithen

I have seen a similar issue raised AXIS2-5301, and seems like the call stack of out of memmory error also similar.I can see you have worked on this issue as well.It would be a great help if you could confirm if a fix has provided for this issue "AXIS2-5301", if there is a fix then please share us the version details in which the fix went in.

Also, I have a followup question on your previous update, as per you "The contract of DataHandler allows multiple calls to getInputStream(). That means that requesting the stream and closing it will not free the memory held by the DataHandler." ,So what would be the ideal way to access data from datahandler without leaking memmory.Actually the API which we are using to download content from the repository is returning us a DataHandler object, so we are forced to use the DataHandler and we can see the memory is not been cleaned up even if we try to close the inputstream.We have also tried anotehr method "WriteTo" which datahandler provides, and wrote content to file and then closed the file, but this also not helping we can still see the memmory leak.

following is the method we tried to access data from DataHandler object (which is returned by the webservice API)

1) URL url = new URL("http://"host"/ws/CntSrvc.svc?wsdl");
        CntSrvc_Svc cService = new CntSrvc_Svc(url);
        CntSrvc cntSrvcClient = cService.getBasicHttpBindingCntSrvc(new MTOMFeature());
        InputStream in = null ;
        in = cntSrvcClient.download(contextIDString).getInputStream();
        // write in to a file.
       
        FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream("c:/tmp/donwload.raw");
                       
                        byte[] buffer = new byte[8 * 1024];
                    int bytesRead;
                    while ((bytesRead = in.read(buffer)) != -1) {
                    fos.write(buffer, 0, bytesRead);
                    }
                   
                        if (fos != null) {
                                fos.flush();
                                fos.close();
                        }
                       
        //closing the input stream
        if (in != null)
                {
                        in.close();
                }

2) URL url = new URL("http://"host"/ws/CntSrvc.svc?wsdl");
        CntSrvc_Svc cService = new CntSrvc_Svc(url);
        CntSrvc cntSrvcClient = cService.getBasicHttpBindingCntSrvc(new MTOMFeature());
        DataHandler dh  = cntSrvcClient.download(contextIDString).
        File file = new File("c:/temp/newfile."+contextIDString);
        OutputStream os = new FileOutputStream(file);
        dh.writeTo(os);
        os.flush();
        os.close();


In above both cases we are getting the out of memmory exception.We have written a sample java application where we donot have AXIS2, and tried to download, then we are not seeing any memmory leak.So as per our experiment when we use DataHandler in AXIS2 envionment we are getting this out of memmory exception.
       
We are stuck on this issue from past 3 weeks , it would be a great help if you can shed some light on this.

> We are using AXIS WS to connect and download files from an external repository .We are using SOAP based webservice calls download an object. The API returns a DataHandler object, from where we are getting the input stream. We have tried closing the inputstream object but even after the close call we can see that the memory is still holding the stream, and eventually the client machine is running out of memory.Any help on this would be highly appreciated.
> Our client code is as shown below
> URL url = new URL("http://"+host+"/ws/CntSrvc.svc?wsdl");
> CntSrvc_Svc cService = new CntSrvc_Svc(url);
> CntSrvc cntSrvcClient = cService.getBasicHttpBindingCntSrvc(new MTOMFeature());
> InputStream in = null ;
> in = cntSrvcClient.download(contextIDString).getInputStream();
> // write in to a file.
> //closing the input stream
> if (in != null){
>  in.close();
> }
> [Note;] Our client code runs under tomcat container, and this acts as a server to other services.
> [Note:]We have created a sample client without using AXIS, where our client connecting to external repository and download content.Here we donot see any memory leak.Our investigation proves that its when we use AXIS and getinputstream() the memory is leaking, input stream is not closing.Our current framework demands AXIS hence we would like to get a solution or workaround for this issue
