Hi, are there any issues if i use web services/soap to implement support to download from our server potentially large zip files?


I imagine the type would be an InputStream.


Thanks very much for any info!

Look into using the soap attachment protocol, apache axis has a good implementation of it using input and output streams.

I'm not that familiar with Web Services standards, but I doubt if you can use an InputStream as a "return value" / "response parameter" because the response is encoded in XML for transport.
