[resolved] TRESTClient -using http method DELETE to delete xml on web server

Hi,
I am using the trestclient component to connect to a web server.
I want to use the http method DELETE (verb) to delete xml data on the web server.
I have checked the forums and the component guide - but only the http methods of GET and PUT are described
https://help.talend.com/search/all?query=tRESTClient&content-lang=en
Has anybody successfully used the http method DELETE? Can anyone outline how it is used? Are parameters a necessity?
Im using 5.3.1 on windows 7
Cheers

The release 5.6.0 provides the DELETE method. I would suggest you update to 5.6.0 (in case of you use TOS and not the Enterprise edition).

Hi Jlolling,
The 5.3.1 release provides the DELETE method. However the component user guide doesnt explain how to use it.
If you or anyone else has used it can you please provide an example?

I haven't used it so far but I know the REST protocol and DELETE is in a way similar to PUT. It expects you address an object with your URL and with the DELETE method you simple delete this object from the server. I sounds not that difficult to understand.
