I want to send an attachment from my web service to the client. I don't want to save it to file so is it possible to pass it as a Base64 encoded string.

I am using the ByteArrayOutputStream which I convert to a byte array.

e.g byte [] byteArray = baos.toByteArray();
String strByte = Base64.encode(bytes);


I now want to pass this from the webservice to the Client. My client uses C#. My webservices run on axis.

How would I go about it or is there a better way of doing it?

AXIS should provide a mechanism for sending attachments that meets the SOAP with attachments standard. Which version of AXIS do you have?
