I am looking at "8054896: Loading a KeyStore prevents GC of Classloader" and am now able to reproduce it on my system. I do see the webapp-related classes present in a heapdump created by VisualVM but not sure what the next steps should be to tell why they are not GC'ed. Is there a good tutorial on this?
