Re: Debugging GWT why does eclipse go berserk, debugs an older version of the project and hoards lots of Giga bytes to the system?

I have created a 3 module GWT project. Since I am still feeling around I want to save previous versions so for each version I copy the project with a different added number to the project name. This has adverse effects:

  1. The temp folder [windows 7 64 ] is crammed with tens and hundreds of Gigabytes which persist even if I delete the project in eclipse. My temp solution is to manually delete them every once in a while.
  2. Every now and then eclipse get's stuck on one of the versions and when i choose the newer version right click and file -debug as web application it runs the old code. I've tried switching workspace, restarting eclipse, restarting the computer, saving the project to no avail. finally I found that creating a new project and running it on debug and then deleting it does the trick.

I think that these are either major bugs or I'm doing something very wrong. How should I go about saving versions? how can I avoid these mishaps?
