I am using Tomcat and wish to use AWT components for rendering stuff that I save off to png files. I've been looking into profiling the Tomcat server (running my web app) and I've noticed once I create an AWT component, it never gets Gc'ed. I assume this is because it grabs screen resources. I've tried component.removeNotify() but this does not help. Is there some guidelines somewhere on how I should deal with AWT components (JEditorPane's, by the way) within this type of application.
