Hi, I'm Willie Wheeler, and I'm a Principal Applications Engineer for a leading provider of online travel services. I have 17 years of professional software development experience, mostly around web application development using Java, JEE and Spring.

With Joshua White, I wrote the book Spring in Practice, for Manning Publications.

I run the Spring in Practice blog, which has technical articles about Java, JEE, Spring, IT management, usability and some other related topics.

Finally, I also run the new Zkybase blog on devops.

I bumped my permgen up from 256m to 512m. That seems to have helped a lot. I have a ton of plugins so I'm assuming that's what was killing me.
