Are you also getting messages in the console saying that files could not be deleted?
Some of the archives get locked when they are used and as a result can not be deleted until the JVM exists.
Thanks for the reply,
Yes, the console does say that the files cannot be deleted. I just find it strange that the lock on the files is not released. For some reason I just thought that when JBoss was done with a particular war, ear, etc. the lock would be released. Guess not then?
