Subject AW: Downloading huge binary files using MTOM
Date Fri, 24 Apr 2015 09:48:11 GMT

thanks a lot, I will think about what you describe.

Meanwhile I found out that the first exception occurs at the svcutil.exe generated WCF client
After that, my SpezplaFS (FileService) just raises a "broken pipe" exception.

Looking closer says me that the service already has a stream in effect and does not buffer
the whole file.
So the service seams to behave properly, at least for downloads.

My focus needs to be at the client side and that is making a proxy without using a svcutil.exe
generated code.
That is to say, I shall have a stream from the WCF framework and feed that, buffered or not,
into a file.

How to do that is still a bit of a mystery for me.
And I think for many others too because seldom you find someone knowing the ( Axis2 / JAXWS
/ JAXB ) and
the other part, the WCF side very well.

This should be possible by building a custom javax.activation.DataSource implementation which
is capable of generating the InputStream on demand (and potentially multiple times).

You may run into problems with some extensions (such as rampart for JAX-WS) that may require
converting to a DOM representation, which forces the binary content into the xml itself.

Subject: Downloading huge binary files using MTOM


I have successfully developed and we use it since years, a Binary File Service, based on JAXWS/JAXB,
using MTOM to download large binary data. At the service side there is a DataHandler involved
which reads the bytes into a byte[] called ImageDepot. (The axis2 MTOM example). The problem
is now that the size of this byte array might have become too small. At least I get that impression
at the client side, which is a WCF client using a proxy generated by the svcutil asking for
the WSDL data from the running SpezplaFS (File Service).

In short: all works fine until at the client the byte[] array becomes too small to keep more
2^31 bytes of data.

In short: How can I use MTOM and stream bytes from huge binary files, files with a size up
to long.MaxValue, from a service to a client by using a64K byte buffer?

The client should be able to call this service, the stub, only once without the need to manage

At the client I would see something like

BufferdInputStream bis = new BufferedInputStream(new ... what ever stream would talk with
 my MTOM streaming service ...);
BufferedOutputStream bos = new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(datafile));
Byte[] buffer;

While (! bis.wead(buffer, 0, Size)== 0) {
    bos.write(buffer, 0, Size);
If (!bis==null) bis.Close();
If (!bos==null) bos.Close();

And pointers to a working example are very welcome
Thank you
