How to remove references to deleted projects in the workbench

Technote (FAQ)


How do you remove references to deleted projects in the IBM WebSphere Application Developer workbench?


You have one Web project referenced to a Java project. After you remove the java project, the Web project has a missing reference error. You tried to edit the module dependencies, edit the classpath, rebuild the project but nothing worked.


In the Navigator view, open the .classpath file of the Web project in the editor and let it refresh.

It is possible that the .classpath file which stores all the project references has been cached.

Another approach is to edit the Manifest file to allow the project to refresh.
