Passing large arguments to web services

P: n/a
Hi all -

I am going to implement a web service using .NET. It's a service that
attributes authorship of a document to one of two authors, based on
the training data provided. I am going to produce a basic web page
that allows the data to be uploaded, before displaying the results.

The web service needs to receive three large sets of data from the web
page as arguments (a set of training data for each author, plus the
data to be tested). The total size for all argument data could be
anything up to 10MB.

I have no experience with web services. My question is - can a web
service receive that much data as arguments?

Is the large amount of data being passed as arguments likely to have
any impact on the service? Are there any design considerations I need
to bear in mind?

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

This is totally possible... data is data. Just as you can save data
into a database, be it an image, a .NET assembly, or string, you can
send data via web services. Do a quick search on MSDN for MTOM. You
will see it related to WSE3 or WCF technologies. MTOMs allows for very
efficient sending of huge files. I use WSE3/MTOM to communicate
between two systems sending files others would use FTP for.
