Hello,



I am writing a specification for my service . What is the best way to expose zipped text files of size around 200 MB ( not more ) through this web service ?



Thanks

Chris

Attachments are usually sent with SwA (SOAP with attachments) where the attachment is sent outside of the SOAP envelope (both are wrapped together with MIME). See for example: SOAP attachments with JAX-RPC. You may however want to test your particular SOAP stack with attachments of that particular size. If you run into trouble you may need to find one that supports your needs or switch to an alternate tactic where the service releases a URI from which the file can be downloaded with a more appropriate protocol (with resumable downloads etc.) for a limited amount of time.

Use it if it isn't too restrictive for the interoperability with your prospective clients.

However you may still want to test it out with files of a representative size to see if it is viable in your target operating environment.
