Axis2 memory leak on redeploy

For quite a while I'm facing the well-known problem of memory leaks while re-deploying Axis2 Webservices on Tomcat and JBoss.

The problem is that you run out of memory, the PermGemSpace in fact, after some redeploy cycles of an Axis2 based Webservice. The only solution is to restart the server to clean up the memory. While this is not too hard on a development machine, it's more difficult on a production server. Although you most probably won't deploy on a production server too often, it's getting on my nerves.
