Hi,

I need help with SOAP Attachment.

I'm receiving an XML message over HTTP (in a java Servlet). The incoming XML contains a SOAP message with attachment. There is no web service involved. I want to extract the SOAP attachment from the request. How can I do it?

Thanks,

Sharad

Detaching an attachment from a SOAP message depends on what format the attachment is in. If it came from a Microsoft source (like MSXML) then it is most likely DIME and you need a DIME parser to deal with it. Something like onion networks: Onion Networks Web Page.

If it comes from a Java-based source then there are several things you can do. Most people seem to be using Axis for this kind of thing - check out:

Loughran paper on SwA

He's got some example code which 'manually' extracts attachments.
