Subject [jira] [Commented] (IVYDE-305) Cannot delete outdated snapshot artifact from cache
Date Thu, 17 May 2012 16:20:07 GMT


Nicolas Lalevée commented on IVYDE-305:

If Eclipse is holding a lock on it, it is probably that is doing something with it. Do you
have anything running in Eclipse which depends on that jars ? Did you do something like opening
a file in that jar ? Or anything that would look like actively "using" the jar ?

IvyDE is unable to retrieve the updated version into the cache if the artifact in the repository
is updated after the initial resolve in Eclipse. Command-line ant builds also fail in this
> It appears as though Eclipse is holding a lock on the jar file in the cache, which I
believe is a Windows-only problem. Using something like Process Explorer to kill the file
handle allows the resolve to succeed, but it's really annoying to have to do that and I don't
think the average user would even know to do it. Since IvyDE is running in

> Also, IvyDE reports this (somewhat misleadingly) as a module not being found:
> "Impossible to resolve dependencies of myOrg#myMod;1.0
> unresolved dependency: depOrg#depMod;1.0.SNAPSHOT: not found"
> In the Ivy Console (and if you attempt to resolve in a command-line ant build), you get
a more accurate error message:
> "Couldn't delete outdated artifact from cache: C:\Documents and Settings\MYUSER\.ivy2\cache\depOrg\depMod\jars\depMod-1.0.SNAPSHOT.jar"
