Subject Re: Really Streaming objects to the service client
Date Sun, 25 Oct 2009 22:49:27 GMT
Well, let's see. AFAIK, none of the myriad of WS-* things that we have in
CXF directly addresses this, but you many be overly pessimistic about some
aspects. Are you SOAP-y on both ends, or is this a JAX-RS sort of business?

CXF doesn't always make temp files out of outgoing attachments. If you have
a DataHandler / DataSource, it will just pump the bytes.

HOWEVER, the client side raises harder problems. I'm imagining some sort of
custom interceptor that would grab the content before MTOM processing has a
chance to do whatever it normally does, and calls you back.

This all assumes that you are responsible for data format management; none
of the data bindings that I am familiar with can handle any concept of
incrementally unmarshalling objects and handing them to you.

People have whole object caching systems for this sort of thing ...
