Subject Axis MTOM and Base64
Date Mon, 10 Dec 2007 21:57:26 GMT
Some of the online documentation ( 
guide.html)  states that
"add and set the "enableMTOM" parameter to true in the Axis2.xml.  
When it is set, *outgoing* messages *which contains optimizable  
content* will be serialized and send as MTOM optimized messages. If  
it is not set all the binary data in binary content nodes will be  
serialized as Base64 encoded strings."

 From my understanding of this you can enable MTOM so that the  
outgoing message is wrapped in MTOM ONLY if it contains optimizable  

I tried enabling this, however it is now always on. Every message,  
even ones that contain only string fields (no base64) are wrapped in  

Does anybody have any ideas about where to look to adjust this, or  
have I mis-interpreted the documentation?
