I have updated common_.css with some new rules, but for some reason, the old version of this file gets copied to the deployed webapps directory in my tomcat.
Not sure if this is related to WebDSL or some caching by the OS (Ubuntu) or archiver.

I first thought it was related to the compile units cache, but even when this is disabled and after using webdsl clean, I still get the out-dated common_.css in the deployed application.

update: The generated war file in .servletapp contains the out-dated file (so it’s not some caching by tomcat).
update: Adding another change to myApp/stylesheets/common_.css does not fix the problem. This is driving me nuts! I’m 100% sure I’m editing the correct file.
update: Reboot has no effect. I can only find 1 place with the out-dated stylesheet, which is in .servletapp, which gets deleted when invoking webdsl clean

elmer@elmer-desktop:~/reposearch$ find . -name 'common_.css'
./stylesheets/common_.css  <- the updated one
./.servletapp/stylesheets/common_.css <- outdated one

Even after a webdsl clean, the out-dated common_.css keeps coming back.
