Subject Re: when to use SOAP attachment ?
Date Thu, 29 Jan 2004 18:49:24 GMT
Hi Vishal,

You should yse attachments when you are planning to send the large amount of data. Because
SOAP uses the existing MIME and DIME formats to send the data so no new invenstion and advantage
is the SOAP processors does not have to do any processing work to get the attachments, because
when we send the attachement in SOAP request the SOAP envelop contains only the reference
to the actuall attachment data. 

For each attachment there is a referece in the SOAP envelop and all attachment data is devided
in parts some thine like ----Part--ID and at the end the close part line while tells the end
of the attachment info.

Does that make sense.

If u need the actually code and format how it works, let me know.
