ZIP and PDF files through PI



we are working for a customer who wants to move ZIP files and possible PDF files through PI from a SAP system. PI has the version of 7.1

We where thinking of embedding the PDF files as base64 in an XML message and using PROXY to send this to PI

1) Can PI "extract" XML embedded PDF files from an XML message and for example place them in a folder as straight PDF files? Just by using the fileadapter perhaps?

2) Can PI zip the XML embedded PDF files into a ZIP "message" and then place them in a folder (as Q1)

3) When sending PDF as base64 - would that work even though that the PDF has some pictures (logo's ) in there?
