Delete a RecordStore

This shouldn't really be a problem, but I'm having trouble deleting a RecordStore:

My code:
RecordStore reiser=

String fileName =reiser.getName();
catch(RecordStoreException rse)
This code gives me a RecordStoreException. That's all I'm able to tell from the exception. I know that the fileName variable contains the correct name of the RecordStore.
I appreciate any help from you!

Is the record store being opened somewhere else in your code without closing it? You have to call the close method as many times as you call the open method before it will truly close. If you want to verify that the record store is being found, you could put a catch block before the catch block you have to catch a RecordStoreNotFoundException. If that catch block does not execute, the you will know that it is finding the record store.

Doesn't that strike you as a weird implementation of the closeRecordStore() method?
