Subject Re: Parsing a file inside a zip file locking zip file on windows
Date Tue, 17 Jul 2018 20:36:57 GMT

Thanks for getting back to me.  That makes sense that other OS still have file handles kicking
around, and its just the problem shows up more obviously in windows.  I must say I did try
looking into the (Xerces?) code that opens up the file specified by the URI, but didn't manage
to be able to dig into it, so thank you for those pointers Bernd.

We've ended up working around the issue, and use different Saxon xslt functions to read the
file inside the zip for what we need, so this isn't a blocker issue for us.  I just thought
I should note that this kind of URI passed into the 'parse' function seems to be problematic
- or did I misread some of the suggestions here?

IIRC when Windows opens files for read (or write) it locks them
against deletion.

You need to ensure that you close the file before you try to delete it.
