 * HTTP DELETE method
 * <p>
 * The HTTP DELETE method is defined in section 9.7 of
 * <a href="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt">RFC2616:
 * <blockquote>
 * The DELETE method requests that the origin server delete the resource
 * identified by the Request-URI. [...] The client cannot
 * be guaranteed that the operation has been carried out, even if the
 * status code returned from the origin server indicates that the action
 * has been completed successfully.
 * </blockquote>
 * @since 4.0
@NotThreadSafe // HttpRequestBase is @NotThreadSafe
public class HttpDelete extends HttpRequestBase {

    public final static String METHOD_NAME = "DELETE";

    public HttpDelete() {

    public HttpDelete(final URI uri) {

     * @throws IllegalArgumentException if the uri is invalid. 
    public HttpDelete(final String uri) {

    public String getMethod() {
        return METHOD_NAME;
