A hint: the Tomcat tasks are more trouble than they are worth. The ant tomcat tasks worked with some of my contexts, but the flex app does not seem to be behaving -- it won't undeploy cleanly when using the Tomcat Manager either. :-( That's why I switched to just exec'ing the shutdown.bat and

It sounds like the problem is that undeploying an app from tomcat doesn't work. I'm pretty sure that's becuase on windows you can't delete open files. Yep -- that was the original problem, but since then I changed the script to physically stop tomcat and delete the war and exploded dir. That

I think as long as the project is shared, eclipse won't show .CVS. The only time you'll see them if i'm right is if you check out a project from cvs using a cvs client other than eclipse and create an eclipse project based on those files. Tim, if that's basically how you ended up
