We have an old server running Tomcat 5.5.

Yesterday we deployed a war file, and then it started to crash.

Looking at catalina.date.log I found some java.util.zip.ZipException and then java.lang.OutOfMemoryError. I think it's resulting in memory leak that crashes Tomcat when there's no more memory to feed it.

3 files are involved:

  • /var/tomcat/tomcat-5.5.25/common/i18n/._tomcat-i18n-es.jar
  • /var/tomcat/tomcat-5.5.25/common/lib/._jasper-compiler-jdt.jar
  • /var/tomcat/tomcat-5.5.25/common/lib/._naming-factory-dbcp.jar

They are all in their places and aren't corrupted. Of course the ._ is the first suspect of causing the error. The problem is that these files aren't referenced anywhere in application, even more a i18n-es one, because it has no i18n feature and no spanish config in it and, ALAIK, neither in Tomcat.

Upgrading Tomcat o 7 isn't a possibility, and it wasn't crashing before this app was deployed so blaming the server isn't a viable solution either.

Could anybody give me an idea of what may be using these files or adding that ._ on them?

below is full traces log, it goes from deployment to Tomcat restart. {AppName} is war's name. There's no reference at all to our packages anywhere in stacktraces, it all happens Tomcat's code.
