Plug-in jar remains after feature uninstall [message #561405] Mon, 28 June 2010 15:40

I have an Eclipse plug-in and associated feature that have been developed using Eclipse for RCP/Plug-in Developers, Build id: 20100218-1602. I am using this environment to generate a "deployable feature" as an archive file.

When I install this feature everything works as expected. However, when I uninstall this feature, its plug-in jar gets left behind in the plugins folder.

If I modify the plugin jar within the archive and attempt to re-install, the new version of the jar is ignored and the old version is used (sigh).

If I attempt to delete the old plug-in jar manually, p2 complains:
"An error occurred during the org.eclipse.equinox.internal.provisional.p2.engine.phases.Ch eckTrust phase.
session context was:(, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.provisional.p2.engine.pha ses.CheckTrust, operand=, action=).
Error reading signed content.
The file "blahblahblah\plugins\myplugin.jar" does not exist"

I've tried starting Eclipse using the -clean argument after the uninstall process to clean up the caches, but this doesn't seem to work either.

How can I totally uninstall my feature from Eclipse?
