Delete an Archive from a Vault in S3 Glacier by Using the Amazon SDK for Java

The following code example uses the Amazon SDK for Java to delete the archive. In the code, note the following:

  • The DeleteArchiveRequest object describes the delete request, including the vault name where the archive is located and the archive ID.

  • The deleteArchive API operation sends the request to Amazon S3 Glacier to delete the archive.

  • The example uses the US West (Oregon) Region (us-west-2).

For step-by-step instructions on how to run this example, see Running Java Examples for Amazon S3 Glacier Using Eclipse. You must update the code as shown with the archive ID of the file that you uploaded in Step 3: Upload an Archive to a Vault in S3 Glacier.
