mantis_project_delete_category_v1.zip

Detailed Description

Calls the SOAP based 'mc_project_delete_category' web service, passing the username and password of the API user, and the identifier of the project category to be deleted. Upon authentication, Mantis BT will delete the project category whose identifier was provided, and return a boolean indicator of success (true) or failure (false). !!!NOTE!!! It is recommended to use the 'mantis_project_get_categories' handler first to ensure the category being deleted is in your Mantis BT instance. The Mantis API has a bug that returns a server (500) error if you attempt to delete a category that is not there.
 

This handler utilizes a sample SoapEcho web application that is included within the resources directory of the handler package.  The sample SoapEcho web application can be deployed into a Servlet container such as Tomcat and includes both source and compiled code.  The web application contains a single Class that is exposed as the "EchoService" web service.  The SoapEcho web application wsdl file can be displayed via the http://HOST:PORT/SoapEcho/ws/EchoService?wsdl url.

For more information on how to use Savon, the Ruby SOAP library used by this handler, see http://rubiii.github.com/savon/.
