Description Jonathan Horowitz 2018-10-05 00:56:19 UTC
Using JDK 8u181 on Windows, a webapp utilizing the Batik library may eventually call com.sun.awt.AppContext.getAppContext(), which pins the ParallelWebappClassLoader in memory.

Ah. Good point. I'll put that code back in. It will be disabled by default (as it was before it was removed).

Thanks for the report. This has been fixed in 9.0.x for 9.0.13 onwards.
