jsf 2 & Jboss possible memory leak

thinksteep thinksteep Novice

Hi community,  We are observing a strange situation after upgrading from JSF1.2 & Jboss 4.2.3a to JSF2 & JBoss7.1  Lot of heap size is being eaten by jboss class loader & JSF classes.  We are struggling to understand how to contain this.  Here is Eclipse MAT screenshot.

As well as VisualVM instance count and size screenshot. Most of the references to HashMap & String objects from JBoss and other libraries. Is there anyway to overcome this? What are the optimal memory settings for JBoss7.1.1? Any help would be appreciated.
