No, I haven't seen this. And I've been repacking + packing 100's of
jars in the same process and done it over and over again without
restart. If there was an issue, then my guess is that it's been fixed
since. Do you know if it was entered into Suns issue tracker?
Also, when we first started
pack200 a few years ago, it seemed that the Pack200.packer
had a memory leak. We always ran out of memory after processing some
number of bundles (10? 20? I forget).
The implementation used some statics
that were never cleared. This is why we went with execing pack200.exe
in a separate process. Have you not encountered these memory issues?
