Delete Bucket

DELETE bucket operation deletes a bucket from the QueryIO cluster.

Delete bucket using S3 Compatible REST API

Following code is used to delete a bucket from QueryIO server.

HttpURLConnection object is used to create a DELETE request with bucket name appended to the URL. HttpStatus is used to compare the response code to SC_NO_CONTENT i.e. no content found at bucket location.


import org.apache.http.HttpStatus;

public class BucketOperations {
	 * This program will delete the given bucket
	 * @param serverURL: URL of S3 Compatible REST server(http://<S3 server IP> : <S3 server port> /queryio/). For example:
	 * @param token: authorization token.
	 * @bucketName: Name of the bucket to be deleted.
	public void deleteBucket(String serverURL, String token, String bucketName)
			throws Exception {
		URL url = null;
		HttpURLConnection httpCon = null;

		try {
			/* append "/" at end of serverURL */
			if (!serverURL.endsWith("/")) {
				serverURL = serverURL + "/";
			url = new URL(serverURL + bucketName); 	//creates a URL with appending bucket name at end

			//Returns a URLConnection object that represents a connection to the remote object referred to by the URL.
			httpCon = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();			

			httpCon.setDoOutput(true);	// to use the URL connection for output
			httpCon.setRequestMethod("DELETE");	//DELETE request is used.

			httpCon.setRequestProperty("authorization", token);	//Provides token for authorization

			httpCon.connect();	//Opens a communications link to the resource reference by the URL

			if (httpCon.getResponseCode() == HttpStatus.SC_NO_CONTENT) {	//Bucket deleted if response code is HttpStatus.SC_NO_CONTENT
					System.out.println("\nBucket Deleted Succesfully...");
				System.out.println("\nBucket not Deleted..!");
		} finally {	//close connection
			if (httpCon != null) {
