I would like to attach a binary file (PDF) to an xml document. And that XML Document will be transmitted to a Java Application.

Any ideas on how to go about it ?

Thanks in advance.

You will need to encode the binary data to a text format (UUEncoding will do this), then wrap all that in a CCDATA section (or that PCDATA).
On the receiving end, get the data and decode it back to its binary format.

You might have problems using String if the data is large (StringBuilder or StringBuffer would serve better) but basically yes.
