Initiates the asynchronous execution of the DeleteS3BucketWithObjects operation. DeleteS3BucketWithObjects deletes an S3 bucket which contains objects. An S3 bucket which contains objects cannot be deleted until all the objects in it are deleted. This method deletes all the objects in the specified bucket and then deletes the bucket itself.


This is an asynchronous operation using the standard naming convention for .NET 4.5 or higher. For .NET 3.5 the operation is implemented as a pair of methods using the standard naming convention of BeginDeleteS3BucketWithObjects and EndDeleteS3BucketWithObjects.
