Guys

Has anyone seen this?

I am trying some file manipulation...  concantenating file (using my concatenate method)

then after saving them I want to get rid of the files.  Almost of all of them are deleted EXCEPT the file I modifyied using

concatenate (not deleted using my cleanupFiles method)

I was trying to use

//ByteBuffer buffer = tmpChannel.map(FileChannel.MapMode.READ_ONLY, channel.position(), tmpChannel.size());

but had to change it to use a regular fileinputstream again... some reason it has the modified files under some sort of lock..  try all kinds of ways to make sure they were closed,,, to no avail




private void concatenate(List fileList, boolean lastItemFirst)
      throws Exception
      {
            Object[] fileArray = fileList.toArray();
            
            
            String fileName;
            FileChannel channel = null;
            FileOutputStream fs = null;
            File concatenatedFile = null;
            FileInputStream temps = null;
            int max = fileArray.length - 1;
            
            
            if (lastItemFirst)
            {
                  
                  for (int items = max; items >=0; items--)
                  {
                        
                        fileName = (String)fileArray[items];
                        
                        //last segment of a Data
                        if (items == max)
                        {
                              
                              concatenatedFile = new File(fileName);

You'd probably find it a lot easier to use this:

you're closing the stream before you do the concatenation :)
should be something like:

             Iterator i = fileList.iterator();
             FileChannel out = new FileOutputStream(((File)i.next()).getChannel();
             long pos = 0;
             while (i.hasNext())
                 source = args[i];
                 FileChannel in = new FileInputStream(((File)i.next()).getChannel();
                 long size = in.size();
                 MappedByteBuffer buf = in.map(FileChannel.MapMode.READ_ONLY, pos, size);
                 out.write(buf);
                 pos += size;
                 in.close();
              }

Actually I am seeing this issue below where I cant delete the file I've modified via the FileChannel.map

Cannot delete file if memory mapped with FileChannel.map (windows)

it'll get closed eventually, once the gc'er is done with it.
