I have successfully deployed a webapp that has some JAR files in the <app>/WEB-INF/lib directory. When I click remove in tomcat manager for this webapp the application directory is not removed under <tomcat>/webapps because 2 JAR files remain in the <app>/WEB-INF/lib directory and are locked by tomcat. To remove them I have to shutdown tomcat. If they are not removed and tomcat is restarted it thinks it has a blank application.
Has anyone else come across this and is there any way to get the 'remove' to delete these JAR files so I don't have to shutdown tomcat and delete them manually?

Have found a workaround for this. The JAR files can be moved into the /shared/lib directory. Not ideal, but fixes the problem.

not so much that they're locked by tomcat, but your OS (you're using Windows?) I've had this problem with windows in the past.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
