I'm working on a REST service which will include a binary stream as a request property. I'm currently encoding the stream as BASE64 and passing it as a string value, but I was wondering if there is anything in the Caché JSON support that may be a better fit for encoding this data? Thanks Chris
No. Any direct binary data in json would need to extend the base grammar, see: http://json.org/
That being said, there are initiatives to allow for that, like BSON. Caché doesn't have support for it as of this moment. So your base64 approach actually is very solid!
