Hi all,
I've create a new JUnit project but want to delete it, I tried to follow the steps described in the help, right click the project and try to find the delete option, but cannot find it... I've attached the uri of the snapshot of the context menu... Thanks very much! :)

The view you need (tab) is Team Organization, it doesn't have the option within Team Artifacts. Highlight project, right click and the action is Archive. Just make sure you want to do this, as it is irreversible once you press yes. Hope that helps!

Thanks, that really helps.. But even if I archive the project, when I want to create a new project with the same name as the archived project, it will fail, it prompts that a project with the same name already exists... So we are not really deleting the project, right? Is there any function that performs the deleting action? Thanks lots! :)

Hello cactuswzh,

would reaning the old project prior to archiving do the trick?

Yes, I'd suggest renaming your archived project "foo" something like
"foo.ARCHIVED", to prevent naming conflicts.

Cheers,
Geoff
