WinHTTP Request (5.1) XML and file POST

Recommended Posts



I am searching for days now for the solution of the following problem:

I use the winHTTPRequest object to send XML messages to different webservices. So far so good. This works very well.

Now I need to post a bit more complex request to a webservice: an XML part and a JPG file.

I use the multipart + boundary syntax to divide my message in two parts which looks something like this:



-XML part


-jpg file part

(sorry, at the moment I haven't got the code available)

I use SOAPUI to see how the message should look like (RAW data). I used multipart syntax correctly and the error response of the server says that the jpg file couldn't be uploaded.

I got real close to the cause of the problem and I suspect the problem is the format of the file which has to be uploaded. my questions are:

- How can I include binary data in my request? (because the XML is a string and I can't put a string and binary data together)

- Do any of you guys have a good example of how to implement this? (a xml and file request in one)

I would REALLY appreciate any help on this! I'm totally clueless on this one....

Thank you,
