Remove test step from ALM using Java

Hi, I am trying to remove all test steps for a specific Test Case in alm.

I am using com4j bridge and alm 11.


so far I managed to add number of steps to a test case but I can not detem them.


my code to add steps:


IBaseFactory iFactory = iTest.designStepFactory().queryInterface(IBaseFactory.class);

IDesignStep iStep = iFactory.addItem("Step name ").queryInterface(IDesignStep.class);


I tryied:


IBaseFactory iFac = iTest.designStepFactory().queryInterface(IBaseFactory.class);
IList steps = iFac.newList("");

for (int i = 1; i <= steps.count(); i++) {




it compiles and runs however steps are not deleted from ALM

Please help
