Subject Re: [Axis2] [XMLBeans] handling binary content with data binding
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2005 04:19:09 GMT
Hi Dennis,
You are absolutely right on the XMLBeans behavior. With the current code 
generator what happens is that XMLBeans generates the correct object for 
binary representation but always serializes it into a base64 string. The 
input however works since extracting the binary part from the mime part is 
done by the MTOMbuilder before data binding. As it stands now, the generated 
stubs *can* handle incoming optimized messages but never sends out an 
optimized message!
So I guess we should dig deep into XMLBeans (or any other framework) if we 
are to solve this!
