1.8.8 replace plugin while server running

  1. Hi, I'm trying to write a plugin, and I want to replace my plugin's file with the newest version while my server is running. I'm on windows 10 and I can't seem to find anything that can "unlock" the file. It says it's open in another program (java), and it won't let me override, rename, or delete it, which sorta makes it really annoying to test my plugin, because I have to stop and restart my server every time I change something.

    Thanks :)
     
  2. Copy & pasting should work.
