Subject [jira] Created: (AXIS2-2456) Direct Streaming of attachments
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2007 10:51:32 GMT
Direct Streaming of attachments

                 Key: AXIS2-2456
             Project: Axis 2.0 (Axis2)
          Issue Type: Wish
    Affects Versions: 1.1.1
         Environment: All
            Reporter: Jochen Zink

It would be great to get direct access to the inputstream, which is used for Attachments.

At the moment, the attachment is cached in files or it is stored in memory.

Big files can't store in memory (OutOfMemoryException) and the FileCaching feature of axis
could run in several problems. The first on, the application has to clean up the cache directory.
That is not nice. It is possible to run in concurrent use of the temp Files.

The bigger problem is, that applicationservers can forbidden the write access to hard disc.
In this case, axis is not able to consume binary contents and cache them in files.

The best solution is, that axis direct streams the attachment to the application. I know,
that could be difficult if some handlers also have to read the stream (security, etc.). But
it should be possible and would spend a very very usefull and nice feature for using axis
for business projects.
