    Default Compiling error

    Hi,

    I tried to compile my codes into .war file so I pressed the usual clean and build button in NetBean IDE 7 version.

    Alas, it gives me this error:-

    <target depends="do-clean" if="status.clean-failed" name="check-clean">
    <echo message="Warning: unable to delete some files in ${build.web.dir}/WEB-INF/lib - they are probably locked by the J2EE server. "/>
    <echo level="info" message="To delete all files undeploy the module from Server Registry in Runtime tab and then use Clean again."/>

    I hope someone can advise what should I do in order for the IDE to compile my codes into .war file. Many thanks.

    Are you building and then deploying onto a server? Is the server using the old version that you are trying to overwrite? That error indicates the previous war is in use, and cannot be deleted for you to deploy the new version.

    I think so. The server is tomcat which comes with Netbean IDE. Previously, when I performed the same operation using Netbean 6.8 it didn't give me any trouble.

    What I am trying to do is to compile the code into a .war file and upload to my web hoster.

    But then it gave me the above error.

    Could you please advise how to overcome the problem?

    Many thanks!
