RE: Forcing the SQLite db to close?

The Javahl problem caused by calling dispose() should be fixed in r1153799.


@Mark: Can you verify if this solves your problem?


If this resolves the problem this fix might need backport to 1.6.

Or you can close the wc context with svn_wc_context_destroy(). This closes
all contexts at once.
(Clearing the pool with svn_client_ctx_t / svn_wc_context_t has the same


I see that JavaHL has a ClientContext class and the Java code creates a
private instance of this class. From what I can see in ClientContext.cpp it
stores the svn_client_ctx_t in the global pool.


    /* Create a long-lived client context object in the global pool. */




I wonder if we could simply add a method to JavaHL to destroy this context?
I do not see anywhere that the wc_context is created in JavaHL native code
so not sure if it would be possible to clear the pool used to store those.
