Hi ,
I would like to have an audio file or video to be part of an xml, i.e as base64 format or other not a link. I have some questions regarding it:
I have used the org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64 to encode an image, since the encoding returns a String I used it to encode the audio and it returned a string which is great, but how to decode it? since I dont know how to use the same library to decode I used the sun.misc to decode, but this seems to be only able to decode to an image (using BufferedImage), but I didnt an equivalent function for audio or video

questions and points:
1-what is the difference between the both libraries and which one do you advice to use? (50 ps)
2-code snippets or guidance to a decoder/encoder for video audio using base64 format?(350 ps)

thx

You ought to stick to the commons library as the sun classes are not fully supported. What problems are you having decoding?

you can use org.apache.soap.encoding.soapenc.Base64 class
it has simple encode and decode methods
