Binary Data over JSON/XML?


#1

Hello there,

I am currently putting together a rails-based web application which
will only serve and receive data via json and xml. However, some
requirements contain the ability to upload binary data (images). Now
to my understanding JSON is not entirely meant for that… but how do
you in general tackle the problem of receiving binary files/data over
those two entrypoints to your application?

Cheers and thanks,
