Re: Version Control System to Storage BIG Design Files

I do not think Web Services and SOAP are appropriate for very large media files (?). There is something ("SOAP with Attachments"?) which attempts to address such situations but some people I work with tried and gave up on using it, a while ago.
You might want to use JDBC, and CLOB's in a database, I think, that has good performance for large ones (Oracle comes to mind).
Also you probably cannot store incremental "diffs" for files which are that big and are presumably not just text, so much of the value and complexity of a version control system (involving the diffs between versions) is irrelevant.
