SOAP w/ Attachments Interop tests ?
There seems to be a growing number of toolkits that support SwA, it
seems like now would be a good time to setup some SwA interop tests.
- Somewhat related to this, Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME)
is now available as an IETF Internet Draft . Please send any comments
to the public mailing list . Archives are available at .
Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME) is a lightweight,
binary message format that can be used to encapsulate one or more
application-defined payloads of arbitrary type and size into a
single message construct. Each payload is described by a type, a
length, and an optional identifier. Both URIs and MIME media type
constructs are supported as type identifiers. The payload length is
an integer indicating the number of octets of the payload. The
optional payload identifier is a URI enabling cross-referencing
between payloads. DIME payloads may include nested DIME messages or
chains of linked chunks of unknown length at the time the data is
generated. DIME is strictly a message format, provides no concept
of a connection or of a logical circuit, and does not address head-
