GS3: Deleting a collection on Windows when server is running

Reported by: ak19 Owned by: nobody
Priority: moderate Milestone: Greenstone 3 wishlist
Component: Greenstone3 Runtime Severity: minor
Keywords: GS3, Windows, server Cc:


When the GS3 server is running on a Windows machine, a collection cannot be completely deleted either from GLI or Windows explorer. The database file in the collection's index folder is (also) kept open so that it can't be deleted.

Dr Bainbridge's advise: Upon the user telling GLI to delete a collection, GLI tells the GS3 server to delte the collection, which then goes through releasing the (database) file handles.

Anu thinks this is fixed for deleting a collection in GLI. Test.

Can't help the windows explorer problem. Need to shut tomcat to delete collections from Windows.
