public class DeleteMethod
extends XMLResponseMethodBase

DELETE Method. The delete method can be sent to either a collection or non-collection resource. If a delete is sent to a collection, then all members of that collection are deleted.

Deletes can fail because of permission problems or if a resource is currently locked.

A typical request/response pair might look like this:

Request

 DELETE /container/ HTTP/1.1
 Host: www.foo.bar
 

Response

 HTTP/1.1 207 Multi-Status
 Content-Type: text/xml; charset="utf-8"
 Content-Length: xxxx
 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
   <d:multistatus xmlns:d="DAV:">
   <d:response>
     <d:href>http://www.foo.bar/container/resource3</d:href>
     <d:status>HTTP/1.1 423 Locked</d:status>
   </d:response>
 </d:multistatus>
 

In this example, the delete failed because one of the members was locked.
