> ciObjectFactory doesn't keep cached Metadata* alive. ciMetadata is different from ciObject - it doesn't store JNI handle, but a raw Metadata* pointer.

What kind of ciMetadata do you observe being unloaded?

For instance, if I remember correctly ciInstanceKlass is kept alive by storing a handle to the loader object of the instance klass.
