Thanks for the update.   Definitely don't let work on this affect your 
studying for exams.   Keeping grades up is higher priority.

Doesn't the SOAP/TCP protocol allow the message to be split across several 
frames?   Basically, send a "chunk" of the message at a time?   If so, your 
output stream would just need a fixed size buffer of some sort (like 4K or 
something).   When the buffer fills, write out a frame and reset the buffer 
back to 0.   That way, it would avoid having the whole message in a block.

The other option is to use our CachedOutputStream.   It uses a 
ByteArrayOutputStream for a while (64K by default), but then will change to 
using a temporary file for storage to avoid having huge blocks in memory.
