which log file you saw the error ?
It is generally seen in catalina.out and gc.out would some info too, in case of tomcat so again my question is what are you using to serve java application? is it tomcat or jboss ?
You need to check the java logs, in most cases java outputs most information in a file called catalina.out. It just depends on the actual program. Without details, no on here will know. In most cases, there are two ways to fix java "out of memory" errors.. you either start Java to use more JVM max memory in the programs JAVA options or you actually need to add more memory to your system.
well i think you restarted java and that worked for you..so would add here that this "out of memory" error could be because of memory leak or as @trickykid said, a possibility that your application actually needs more memory to grow. The suggestion would again be check the logs to see what caused it.
