I am doing development on Windows with some of the source code mapped to a drive letter from a Clear Case dynamic view.
This setup is quite unreliable. There is often a 30-second delay to see a file and sometimes the server just disappears.
This causes havoc with IDEA (4.5.4 on WinXP).
IDEA seems fairly quick to cache a "failure" state. Sometimes hitting Synchronize helps, but sometimes not.
Sometimes deleting the Idea/system/caches & Idea/system/jars directories helps, but sometimes not.
Right now I have a situation where the project tab shows me files that, when opened, show in the editor as EMPTY even though when viewed in another editor through the same drive letter that is in the Module Path, the file is not empty.
I can't seem to get Idea to "take another look". Synching & deleting the caches & jars directories doesn't help.
How do I get Idea re-examine the file?
Any help would be appreciated. This is driving me crazy.
P.S. The CC view is large and IS changing - making a local copy and keeping it synchronized would be quite painful.
P.P.S. I also haven't been able to get the TLDs in External Resources to get re-freshed - they stay red.
