SOAP is an XML based protocol, which essentially is just a structured text file. If you really must use SOAP to transfer large files then you'll need to use something like Base64 encoding and embed the file in an XML tag. Here's a basic example: <soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <soap:Body> <submitClaim> <accountNumber>5XJ45-3B2</accountNumber> <eventType>accident</eventType> <image imageType="jpg" xsi:type="base64binary"> 4f3e9b0...(rest of encoded image) </image> </submitClaim> </soap:Body> </soap:Envelope> Notice the xsi:type="base64binary". In this example they are encoding the JPEG binary data as base64 ASCII text.
