Memory Leak in OrgChartDemo JavaFX when repeated add/clear

0 votes
I have a memory leak in my test app. I'm not sure I remove the objects the right way because the profiler shoes they do not get destroyed. My test is based on OrgChartDemo so I did the following to confirm (to your demo app)

I added a timer to re - add the contents every 5 seconds.

Call graph.clear() before adding it again.

Get Memory leak.

Added this to the end of the initialse function in OrgChartDemo.java:

    Timeline timeline = new Timeline(new KeyFrame(


        ae -> buildSampleGraph()));



  private void buildSampleGraph() {

    try {

      URL url = OrgChartDemo.class.getResource("resources/samplegraph.graphml");

      // create an IOHandler that will be used for all IO operations

      final GraphMLIOHandler ioh = new GraphMLIOHandler();

      // we set the IO handler on the GraphControl, so the GraphControl's IO methods

      // will pick up our handler for use during serialization and deserialization.

//-------> add this to clear old data:



      ioh.addXamlNamespaceMapping("http://www.yworks.com/yfiles-for-javafx/demos/OrgChartEditor/1.0", Employee.class);


    } catch (IOException e) {


    } catch(Exception e){
