Cleaning Out The Target Directory

What manages the target directory for my deployed app, Maven or IntelliJ?

I am seeing a lot of issues lately where new code isnt getting deployed or just plain not working. I have to manually delete the Target directory and rebuild everything to get things working again.

Windows XP SP3
IJ 12.1.6
Maven 3.1
JDK 7

Hello.

What action do you apply when expecting new code deploy? Do you manually call "Make", or press "Update" in Run window, or anything else?

Thank you,
Alexander.

My workflow:
I usually update all my files and do a "Rebuild Project" then I just click on the "Tomcat" Debug icon, which does MAKE, and builds the artifacts.

Thank you. Could not reproduce the case still.

Can you check your Settings / Compiler. What is the value of options:
1. Clear output directory on rebuild = ?
2. Use external build = ? (If provided.)
3. Make project automatically = ?

Thanks,
Alexander.

Thanks again, but still can't recreate it.

Please file an issue in the bugtracker: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA : maybe developers will be more successful in reproducing.

Regards,
Alexander.

Thanks Alexander. I figured my information is pretty vague. I try and narrow this done a bit more.
