Hi Jdom-Interest List,

Hello. I joined this list because I wrote an xml web service using JDOM.

The web service leads to a question. Is it a developer's responsibility
to remove all the children from the root node of each DOCUMENT we parse?
There does not seem to be an API that deletes the children to 
prevent memory leakages in cases where the root node is passed
to another procedure. (Unless finalize does that?)

The web service seems to have a memory leakage that goes away when
a procedure is run against each root node of each document,
to delete all the children of those root nodes.

Thanks for inventing JDOM.

Mike Brenner
