In a RPC type paradigm it seems more fitting to send/receive your 
attachments as parameters than to obtain the from some other source ; 
however, if that is your intent then set up your RPC call as without 
attachments; then add and extract the attachments as shown in the 
"" example and ""'s "attachments" 
method. Note that even in this case you will need to deal with DataHandler 
since this IS how attachment's are represented in Axis's implementation.
