One option we use on our uPortal installs is to enable 

It requires a bit more CPU but we are generally memory bound and not CPU 
bound. The description reads "Use a byte[] for Strings which can be 
represented as pure ASCII. (Introduced in Java 6 Update 21 Performance 
Release)" for many applications, even those used in other locales, a 
majority of the strings just use the ascii charset which only needs 1 


I realize this isn't a general solution but might be interesting as a 
suggestion for people to look at if they are running into memory issues.
