If you post the code you're using, someone can probably help.  I'm quite
lost by now trying to remember who suggested what.

If you're getting all the way to the base64 encoded byte[], can't you turn
it into a String and then use that as the value of a request parameter for
the POST?  Wasn't that the original goal, to serialize an object, base-64
encode the binary data, and send it to the server as text?

If so, there's a String constructor that takes a byte[], (and you can
specify the charset if necessary).
