Subject RE: How to transfer Binary data/images
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2002 20:00:01 GMT
Using MIME attachments is probably better than inlining binary data in a
SOAP message since you do not have to base64 encode and decode it.  On
average, how much bigger is the base64 encoded data compared to the data
itself?

Chester...
You might want to look at this service.  They provide the service both ways.
Personally, I think this is a good approach (let the client choose).
