Remove version control from Eclipose RCP project [message #1735214] Thu, 16 June 2016 11:11 Go to next message

I have an Eclipse RCP application that uses EGit and JGit to implement the version control of projects.

In some cases, I want to make it so that a project is no longer under version control. This implies both deleting the project's .git directory on the file system, and making my application aware that the project is not under version control.

I tried looking through the JGit API for solutions to this, but could not find anything useful. Simply deleting the .git directory using a file manipulation API is not sufficient, as some files in it seem to be locked (very likely by JGit).

Thanks in advance!

You need to first close the repository before you can delete it since it's keeping pack files open
