Deleting components using ANT migration tool

Hello 

Can any one help me how to implement the destructive changes using the ANT migration tool., I want to achieve doing the multiple deployments at same time while moving my changes to production. basically I need to delete some componenrts during the same deployment using ANT while I do actual deployment. I am not clear with documentation I refered about 'destructionChanges.xml'...Can anyone explain in detail with example if possible

Hi vnookala.

I believe this is your best resource:

Watch the video around minute 11. However, I suggest you watch the whole video so you can get an idea on how this works.

Thanks

Can I add and remove the components using the same command.

I believe so. You just need to create a package first.
