Now, we want to use the browsable API to compose and send an HTTP DELETE request to our RESTful Web Service to delete an existing toy resource. First, go to the URL for an existing toy resource, such as
http://localhost:8000/toys/7. Make sure you replace
7 with the
id or primary key of an existing toy in the previously rendered
Toy List. The HTML web page that displays the results of an HTTP GET request to
/toys/7, plus additional details and controls, will be rendered.
At the right-hand side of the
Toy Detail title, you will see a
DELETE button. Click or tap this button. The web page will display a modal requesting confirmation to delete the toy resource. Click or tap the
DELETE button in this modal.
The browsable API will compose and send an HTTP
DELETE request to
/toys/7 and we will see the results of the call in the web browser. The following screenshot shows a web browser displaying the HTTP status code
204 No Content in the response...
