How to Delete XML Publisher Definition and Template

How often do you create a XML publisher definition with a wrong Codes (Template or Data Definition)? Or you want to change the Code so that it is more meaningful? 

In the XML Publisher's OA Framework pages, both Template and Data Definition pages do not provide an option to delete anything. Moreover, the Template Code or Definition Code is not allowed to be updated. 

The reason is that: concurrent program with XML output matches the Short Name with the template Code to find out which XML Publisher template to use for post processing. If you delete this template, the Post Processor cannot find the template, and then give errors. 

You cannot change the Concurrent Program Short Name in the Form, and you cannot change the XML Template Code, and you cannot change the Data definition Code. If you make a typo in any one, disable it and create another one with the correct name. That's what Oracle suggests.

Come on...I WANT TO DELETE THEM, rather than recreating everything, and leave the wrong stuff in the system.

In another blog I show the way to delete concurrent program, and in here I will show you how to delete XML publisher template and the definition associated with this template. Change the parameters to fit your needs.
