web service with mime attachments

P: n/a
flo
hi,

i have to develop a web service client (must be .net, currently i'm
using c# with wse3) for a java service. the java service uses mime
attachments for up- and download of files.

i googled around for mime support in .net and only saw "don't do it" ;)
(apparently even dime is not possibly in wse3?)

so, is there any possibility to use mime attachments? (i thought about
using system.net.mime to create attachments and embed them into data
stream to server, but i don't know how to do this :( )

i would appreciate any help

thanks
flo

Flo,
I have an article that describes binary attachments in WSE [1].
Please let me know if it helped you.

Martin,

your article describes MTOM quite well, but unfortunately I need a
simple SwA client, ie using only MIME attachments [1] (XOP and MTOM are
not possible since the service uses Axis 1.2.1, DIME might be possible
-- need to check that one).

AlotSoft offers an library with an SOAP extension [2], but it costs
around 5.000$ - which is way to much for an university project.
So, does anybody know a free (preferred open source) library to use
MIME attachments in a .Net Web-Service client?
And a second question: is DIME still supported in WSE3 (via
configuration, etc) or only XOP/MTOM?

thanks again,
flo

ps: sorry for cross-post, but I need some attention :)

reimplementation of Axis in .Net)

flo,
DIME is not supported in WSE3.0 at all.

Sorry,
Martin
