Save file upload content

Hi everyone,

We have a BSP application were we want to save customer images from an UPLOAD FILE and retrieve them later. We don't know what is the best way to go with this. Here are the choices we came across, can anyone guide us with this?

1) store images on a WEBDAV folder by using an OPEN_DATASET function and then call these images on our BSP pages

2) save the images as MIME's using the mime functions (which I am not familiar with)

3) store all images in our own database table

We would greatly appreciate any help on this... Thanks in advance. ( I have not found any weblogs on the subject of SAVING data from an upload file )

Pat

    Patrick, in the end you will have to decide yourself. Here some thoughts.

    (1) Store images on local disk of appServer. My prefered choice. Then you can use a profile setting from ICM to serve images back without ABAP stack. If you have multiple app servers, share this disk. Performance should be ok, as each app server will cache the outgoing images.

    (2) Mime repository is effecitvely (usually) a database table. However, it also has a complete transport connection and authority checks. Much to slow for real development work. These are effectively development objects, and they use a lot of overhead.

    (3) Ok. Easy to do. Easy to write even your own ICF handler to send out images. There is a weblog on this. Usual ABAP paradigm. Probably what I would do at the end of the day.

    Thanks guys ( sorry for the duplicate ).

    I will look at creating the ICF handler. Brian, can you let me know which weblog you are referencing in your answer. I am not very familiar going this route...

    Thanks
