Hi All,

What file(s) would I need to delete to reset the list of problems in an Eclipse project? I've got an issue that an error is persistent in the problem window long after it has been resolved. Doing a full clean does not resolved it. I've done text searches for where the missing reference (in the error text) points from, and it does not exist.

I just need a way to wipe this list so Eclipse can figure out it does not exist.

-Scott

What kind of problem are we talking about here? A Java compilation error, or is this a different type of project?

OK, this is a good one. Quit Eclipse first, of course.

{YOUR WORKSPACE}/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.projects/{YOUR PROJECT NAME}/.markers

and, if it exists

{YOUR WORKSPACE}/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.projects/{YOUR PROJECT NAME}/.markers.snap

OMG you killed my project! No, j/k, worked like a charm. The error was an invalid reference error on a non-java library which existed even after the actual reference was long gone. Since it was a non-java project, Eclipse didn't properly handle noticing it was gone nor allow me to inform it. Thanks Ernest!
