The Axis2 web services framework uses MTOM for attachments. I don't
believe DIME is supported by Axis2 and I'm not sure DIME is still

Please respond to

I think one of the more common ways to send a file like that is as an
attachment. Microsoft supported that as part of their Web Service
Enhancements 3.0 as DIME, but there were also competing technologies.

Depending on your service consumer, you may be able to code the attachment
routine to the standard SOAP call and be able to make it work.

You could also check out the MS solution (DIME) here: and reverse
it for java.

I suppose you could also use a straight HTTP download to download the
file as well.

Not knowing what you client app is, this should be pretty

Have the web service create a file into a temporary folder and expose
that folder for downloads.

The web service could return the URL for the download.
