what to choose?

I want to develop a Webstart application that connects to a server. It will have to read/write some data. But also I want to download and upload files. I thought of doing this using webservices. (So this means SOAP with attachments). I would also like to work over SSL (HTTPS) instead of HTTP.

I am using a JBOSS 4.0.3 server which has integrated JAXRPC support. I can easily create a webservice and will probably also have no problems with HTTPS but how will I handle the attachments?

There are a couple of introductory articles on how to send files using web services on developerWorks.
