Binary file exchange

My customer interested in exchange of binary files.\

Is it possible in XI? File2File and File2mail scenarios?

I think theoretically yes because File Adapter has property data type - binary | text. But how to define data type?

    You need no data types for binary files. Just assign a (dummy) message interface in the configuration for the routing.

    You can as well assign mappings to these dummy interfaces, but of course no graphical mapping, only Java and ABAP mapping is possible with binaries. But in the most cases you would not use mapping for binaries at all.

    Regards
