Error description

  • When both CDI 1.2 and Bean Validation 1.1 features are
    enabled, the Liberty server may encounter a
    java.lang.OutOfMemoryError.  Analysis of a heap dump will
    show a very large number of
    org.apache.bval.cdi.BValExtension$Releasable objects
    present.

Problem conclusion

  • This memory leak was due to the wrong Bean Validation object
    factory intermittently being invoked when CDI 1.2 and Bean
    Validation were both enabled.  The Bean Validation runtime code
    has been updated to correctly detect when to use its CDI enabled
    object factory.  This ensures that CDI enabled managed objects
    are properly managed and released when no longer needed by the
    Bean Validation object factory.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.5.5.9.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
