Hi i want to Send Delete Request to server using Volley along Headers and body parameters. but i am not able to send request successfully

What i have tried

JSONObject jsonbObjj = new JSONObject();
try {
    jsonbObjj.put("nombre", Integer.parseInt(no_of_addition
    jsonbObjj.put("cru", crue);
    jsonbObjj.put("annee", 2010);
} catch (JSONException e) {
    // TODO Auto-generated catch block
VolleyRequest mVolleyRequest = new VolleyRequest(
        Method.DELETE, url, jsonbObjj,

        new Listener<JSONObject>() {

            public void onResponse(JSONObject jsonObject) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub

                if (pDialog != null) {
                Log.e("Server Response", "response = "
                        + jsonObject.toString());

        }, new ErrorListener() {

            public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError arg0) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                if (pDialog != null) {
                Log.e("Error Response",
                        "Error " + arg0.getMessage());
                Log.e("Error Response",
                        "Error = " + arg0.getCause());

        }, mUserSession.getUserEmail(), mUserSession
                .getUserPassword(), false);

        mVolleyRequest, "deleteRequest");

and here is my VolleyRequest request class

public class VolleyRequest extends JsonObjectRequest {

    String email, pass;
    boolean saveCookeis;

    public VolleyRequest(int method, String url, JSONObject jsonRequest,
            Listener<JSONObject> listener, ErrorListener errorListener,
            String email, String pass, boolean saveCookie) {
        super(method, url, jsonRequest, listener, errorListener);
        // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub = email;
        this.pass = pass;
        this.saveCookeis = saveCookie;

    public VolleyRequest(int method, String url, JSONObject jsonRequest,
            Listener<JSONObject> listener, ErrorListener errorListener) {
        super(Method.POST, url, jsonRequest, listener, errorListener);
        // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub


    public Map<String, String> getHeaders() throws AuthFailureError {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
            HashMap<String, String> params = new HashMap<String, String>();

            String auth = "";
            try {
                auth = android.util.Base64.encodeToString(
                        ( + ":" + this.pass).getBytes("UTF-8"),
            } catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
                // TODO Auto-generated catch block

            params.put("Authorization", auth);
            return params;

    protected Response<JSONObject> parseNetworkResponse(NetworkResponse response) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub

        if (saveCookeis) {
            try {
                String jsonString = new String(,


                return Response.success(new JSONObject(jsonString),

            } catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
                return Response.error(new ParseError(e));
            } catch (JSONException je) {
                return Response.error(new ParseError(je));
        return super.parseNetworkResponse(response);



When i tried this code i get 400 response code error Please let me know if anyone can help me.. that what i am doing wrong. Thanks

here the screen shots for Delete Api which i tested and its working fine.

I need to send this Data to server

And here is the response form server

I have posted my working sample project to GitHub to fix DELETE does not support writing, please take a look.

Your app got 400 error code because the data body has not been sent with DELETE request.

Inside, you will find the following:

            case Method.DELETE:
            case Method.POST:
                addBodyIfExists(connection, request);

So we can see DELETE request ignores body data. There's a workaround, that is you create a CustomHurlStack class (copy all content of HurlStack above), with only modification as the following:

            case Request.Method.DELETE:
                addBodyIfExists(connection, request);

Then, in your activity, call:

CustomHurlStack customHurlStack = new CustomHurlStack();
RequestQueue queue = Volley.newRequestQueue(this, customHurlStack);

Please note that this workaround works only for API21+ (API20 I have not tested). From API19-, DELETE does not support writing will be thrown.

P/S: add useLibrary 'org.apache.http.legacy' inside your build.gradle file if your app compileSdkVersion 23 and you get error when create CustomHurlStack class.

Hope this helps!

can you please tell how can i create newRequestQueue method like here‌​/a/…. m little confused please explain because i am getting this error DELETE does not support writing

@BNK 2015-11-08 05:49:20

If you have control over server-side app (web service), I suggest you change so that DELETE request uses URL parameters instead of body params

@Mustanser Iqbal 2015-11-08 06:44:52

that is the main problem... i dont have access to web service

@BNK 2015-11-09 02:31:37

I uploaded my new sample project to, please take a look. However, because the last success run got the response I/onResponse: {"reste":0}, so other requests later will get response code 400 because there's no item to delete :). Actually, they will get { "error": "bad request", "message": "suppression impossible : pas assez de bouteilles correspondantes en cave" }

@Mustanser Iqbal 2015-11-09 09:30:54

Thanks man its working perfectly. and thanks one again for your time. (y)

@BNK 2015-11-09 10:04:51

@Mustanser Iqbal 2015-11-09 11:56:18

@Mustanser Iqbal 2015-12-08 18:53:06

Thanks Brother for your consideration. i have solved it. actually i parse the network response with UTF-8 and it work. Thanku

@BNK 2015-12-08 23:49:13

Ok Bro :), sometimes if the server responses compressed (zip) data, you should decompress it at parseNetworkResponse too.

@Mustanser Iqbal 2015-12-09 04:31:57

Thanks, i don't why client don't access to web api. they give the link and said request on this URL. that's it create problem sometimes.. anyway thanks

@Mustanser Iqbal 2015-12-13 18:17:41

Brother do you have any experience with retrofit? I need a little help in this please.

@BNK 2015-12-14 01:06:06

Not much, I have tried it only 2-3 times before, however, if you have any issue, pls create a new question, IMO, many people in SO can help :)
