Quickly Delete a Node

One of my favorite things about AEM is how it really leverages the HTTP specification. This really comes in handy when you have a node buried deep in a large tree inside AEM which you want to delete, but the browser times out before CRX DELite can render the expanded folder. In such a case, you can directly delete the node by using the HTTP “DELETE” verb. For example:

curl -u admin:admin -X DELETE http://localhost:4502/path/to/node
