Subject Re: Streaming capability with WS binding
Date Wed, 23 Oct 2013 17:36:06 GMT
 Hi Uwe,

 The abilities to stream, buffer in memory, buffer on disk, encrypt, and 
 dealing with attachments in general are implementation details of the 
 JAX-WS framework and not covered by the JAX-WS specification.

 OpenCMIS supports streaming if the Sun JAX-WS RI is used. The 
 WSConverter checks for each stream if "read once" is available and use 
 it, if it is available.
 But it is really easy to break. For example, putting a SOAP Handler in 
 front of the service can force the JAX-WS implementation to read the 
 whole content into memory.

 OpenCMIS does not use mimepull directly. It's a dependency of the Sun 
 JAX-WS RI. We can't influence how the Sun JAX-WS RI uses it and when it 
 uses the feature you have mentioned.

 The only way to get full control is to develop our own Web Services 
 stack and I doubt that we will do that.
