I have a SOMA export request which is returning soap response with base64 encoded binary. I am saving this in a temporary: file using dump-nodes as per suggestion from this forum. We are using ClearCase/CVS to save the export for maintaining versions. I feel if we save it as a zip file it would be convenient for users to view the changes in the files etc. But if I have to do that I have to follow the following two steps
1) Convert base64 encoded binary to .Zip using *nix and save both SOAP response ( so to give as input for import SOMA ) and zip for the convenience of developers to view and to maintain version history.
2) Manually, we copy export ( soap response ) file from dp and load to DP ( while importing ).
I know there are some tools that can do these tasks but we are restricted. So, I have an XML firewall service that makes soma calls, a request from SOAPUI triggers those calls.
I am not sure how implementations are done outside just want to check if there is any thing that can simplify the above tasks or if I have to follow those steps only ?
