I have the MTOM property enabled in the configuration file.
But now I wanted the mtom property to change dynamically.
Please suggest on how to enable this mtom at class level?

When I remove the mtom property in the configuration file and when I add @MTOM(enabled=true, threshold=1024)
in the endpoint class, then I am getting the content type as 'application/xop'.
But I want the content type as 'text/plain' for some of the services.
So can I disable this mtom on the method level?

As you surely have seen, the @MTOM annotation can only be applied to the class level.
As far as I know, it is not possible to disable MTOM for a single method in a web service that uses MTOM - it is all or nothing, it seems.
While not entirely elegant, I would separate the service, creating two services. One that uses MTOM and one that does not.
Best wishes!
