The delete-application-ref command removes a reference from a cluster or an unclustered server instance to an application. This effectively results in the application element being undeployed and no longer available on the targeted instance or cluster.
The target instance or instances making up the cluster need not be running or available for this command to succeed. If one or more instances are not available, they will no longer load the application the next time they start.
Removal of the reference does not result in removal of the application from the domain. The bits are removed only by the undeploy command.
This command is supported in remote mode only.
