How To Delete An Entire Workspace Or Project?


A customer asked me how to delete an entire Workspace from JDeveloper 10.1.3.
He had selected his workspace and then selected the menu "File" -> "Erase From Disk"
The corresponding JWS file was removed, but not its content (Projects).

That's indeed the way the "Erase From Disk" works:
it only deletes the selected object from the OS;

in case of a Workspace or a Project, you delete the corresponding JWS file or JPR file only.
JDeveloper doesn't delete their content recursively.


...

If you delete an application or a project, only the .jws or .jpr file is actually deleted. The

elements contained within the application or project remain on disk. To delete them from disk

through JDeveloper, you must do so explicitly.

So, you have to delete the content of the Workspace or Project manually after you selected "Erase From Disk" in JDeveloper.

Comments:

Actually there is an extension that adds the option to delete a workspace or project that you can get from the help->check for updates. It's called "Remove Workspaces and Projects".
