Can not delete JAR files





------- Additional Comments From conor@cortexebusiness.com.au  2003-02-15 08:15 -------
If the jars are used by the compiler, it is likely that the compiler has locked
the jars. I thing the 1.3 compiler is the most likely candidate here. It also
has a few memory leaks which suggest some objects (and jar locks) not being
cleaned up. What about JDK 1.4? It has reduced the memory leaks, apparently, som
may also release locks on the jar.

Can you confirm that you are using <javac> with these jars in the classpath? If
so, can you try forking the <javac> (set fork="yes") to see if that clears the
problem. If that doesn't let you delete the jars, try to narrow down which task
or tasks cause the jars to lock.

Thanks
