Use the ReviseFixedPriceItem call to change the properties of a currently active fixed-price listing.

Here is a Java ReviseFixedPriceItem sample for revising a multi-variation item (adding and deleting a variation).

* The following steps need to be done to delete a field from an existing listing.
* 1. Create an ApiContext Object
* 2. Set the auth token and target api url (Webservice endpoint)
* 3. Create a ReviseFixedPriceItemCall object.
* 4. Create an item object and set the SKU for the item.
* 5. Create a VariationType for each variation that is to be listed.
* 6. Add item specifics for each variation (Refer ReviseItem specifics samples)
* 7. Set all the variations to VariationsType object and set this to the item using ItemType#setVariations(VariationsType)
* 8. Set the item as the itemToBeRevised in the ReviseItemCall object.
* 9. Invoke ReviseItemCall#reviseItem() to execute the revision.
