Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-1080) <ivy:cleancache/> sometimes doesn't clean the cache

<ivy:cleancache/> sometimes doesn't clean the cache

                 Key: IVY-1080
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Ant
    Affects Versions: 2.0
         Environment: Windows XP, Ant 1.7.0
            Reporter: Jim Newsham

We are using ivy 2.0.0 from ant; in Windows XP.  We noticed that sometimes
cleancache fails silently.  To be specific, cleancache may not delete the
cache directory (and all of its contents) if files in the cache are being
used by some application.  This is probably due to the way windows handles
files which are in use (they cannot be deleted).  However, the worst part of
it is that ivy fails *silently* -- the failure to delete the cache directory
does not produce any message or error condition within ant.  This has caused
our development team a lot of confusion, because stale files which should
have been cleaned are still being used.
