What web service API and web service toolkit are you using?
More importantly - what is the existing web service using to handle the attachment (there a a few options).

In general:
Handling attachments in SOAP
SOAP attachments with JAX-RPC
Process attachments using JAX-RPC handlers
Send binary data without using attachments
Fear of Attachments (pdf)
Web Services, Opaque Data, and the Attachments Problem

Using Web Service to Send Image File (JAX-WS/MTOM)
JAX-WS MTOM and Swaref
