Java Question

Why is my publishing failing in Tomcat v7.0 Server because of locks by another process?

I have a Tomcat v7.0 server setup in my eclipse (helios) environment which I use for testing web applications. Currently I have in my workspace a struts web-app which is loaded correctly into the server, along with two ther dynamic web projects which im trying to upload. Mainly, a simple class which i want to turn into a web service for axis2 for the first project and a simple html page (made for testing this issue) for the second one.

However, neither one are loading correctly inside the server and I'm seeing locks by another process errors.

The error given by the server console is:

...etc

Has someone already encountered this issue and knows of a solution?

Answer

I had totally forgotten about this question. Actually, the problem was elsewhere, to solve the "lock" problem all i had to do was restart the computer. Then i had other problems, but that doesn't concern this question.
