  • From jConnect 16.0 SP03 PL06, heap memory usage may be higher than before when either javax.sql.ConnectionPoolDataSource or javax.sql.PooledConnection is used for connection pooling.
  • java.lang.OutOfMemoryError may be seen when so many PreparedStatement objects are created on a connection before returning it to the connection pool.
  • You might see SybConnectionProxy or SybPreparedStatementProxy in a java.lang.OutOfMemoryError stack trace.
