Colin already gave you one option, (base 64 encoding the binary data):

For general information on base 64 encoding:

Here's Jakarta Commons Codec, which includes a base 64 encoder:

Without actually trying it, it looks like all you need to do is:
     byte[] encodedData = Base64.encodeBase64( binaryData );
Then turn the byte[] into a String and POST it to the server as the value of
a request parameter.  If it's not too big, it should work the same way as
sending a big string from a text area.

The 'commons-dev' list is usually reserved for questions about the
development of the libraries themselves, so I'm replying to commons-user
(and copying dev).
