I've got a very strange situation.

I've an Axis2 webservice used under Tomcat 7 using the title MyService.

I observed that whenever a request is distributed for this services within the Service list a brand new copy is added (with timestamp and serial number ultimately).

So, additionally to MyService I see another thing such as this:

MyService1326977877993_45513

MyService1326977937630_45514

MyService1326977938353_45515

MyService1326977997618_45516

MyService1326978057639_45517

Things I also see would be that the memory use by Tomcat keeps growing (exactly the same behavior is viewed on Linux and Home windows servers).

Does anybody understand what are individuals 'ghost' services? What can cause them? would they trigger every growing memory use?

Thanks ahead of time!
