And be sure to add the ".ear" at the ent of the directory name since 
Jboss "eats" a lot of Jar-types ".jar", ".sar", ".ear", ".war" the 
deployer uses the filename-ending to decide where to deploy. If you 
leave it away your appp should only be available as utitly Jar for other 
J2EE applicatios.

Had similar problems, but since I switched to JRockit as VM these 
problems were gone since JRockes garbage collection is way better than 
that of the sun VMs (my Oppinion after several years of J2EE 
benchmarking) and JRockit realy rocks when using the Cocoon SVG2PNG/JPEG 
and PDF stuff.

I didn`t have to do any endorsed stuff with JBoss 4.x.
