Subject Windows Directory Locking
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2001 00:34:39 GMT
I haven't seen this on the list, so here is my question. Is there any way to
force ant to delete a directory even if it is open by another process. On
windows if I have explorer open to a directory which is to be deleted, and I
launch my ant script it will fail since explorer holds a lock on directory
and the build depends on the clean process. I have a feeling its an OS
feature but I figured maybe someone has an answer for it.
