2000616 - Sybase Unwired Platform SDK for iOS applications - Memory Leaks when profiling iOS app


We had a few performance issues with our iOS app, in particular with regards to memory. I have profiled the iOS application in Instruments and which did indicated memory leaks during the synchronization. See screenshots of Instruments.

The leaking objects appeared to be instances of SUPAttributeMetaDataRBS that occur during the creation of sub-class instances. The sub-classes are created in our generated code.

My understanding is that the generated code is non-ARC, so are the libraries used by the generated code also non-ARC, and can I assume that the memory management is being carried out appropriately within the libraries?

Is there anything I can do to ensure these leaks do not occur?
