Everything is possible; not everything is a good idea. You could for example implement a servlet that accepts a HTTP DELETE request.
But if you do that, you are not the only one that will be able to delete files. HTTP is quite a public thing you know. So perhaps you will want to ask yourself a question: do I really WANT to be able to remove a file when you have only HTTP access?
Thank you for your response.
Is there a way without servlets.
URL url = new URL("http://devapp/Anand.pdf");
HttpURLConnection httpCon = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
+"Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" );+
I tried the above, but got a method not allowed 404 response.
No easy way. Yeah, you could always set up a VPN, special socket, or something else, but it's still a poor idea. If you can get to it remotely, there's always a chance a hacker, can, too.
