How to create a file in java by appending file chunks together

Hi I have a SOAP Message which returns the following schema (parts are starred out for security purposes) :

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: length

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap12:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap12="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope">
  <soap12:Body>
    <DownloadZipChunkResponse xmlns="http://***.***.gov.uk/***">
      <DownloadZipChunkResult>base64binary</DownloadZipChunkResult>
    </DownloadZipChunkResponse>
  </soap12:Body>
</soap12:Envelope>

The 'base64binary' part of that is a chunk of a file.  The way my program works is that I query the web service with a soap message, sending it the chunk size and the offset so that it know what chunk and size of chunk to send back.

Once I parse the chunk out of the response, I am not sure how I append all of these chunks together to make the overall file.  No idea if I should be using FileStream or any sort of stream or how to write to a location on my machine.

Any help would be much appreciated

Assuming your program is authorized to write a file onto your machine (which it will be if it is an application; if it is an applet it will need additional authority), you can do it with a file stream.

FileOutputStream fo=new FileOutputStream(filename);
fo.write(b);
...
...
//and, eventually
fo.close();


where filename is a String that is a path to a file and b is a array of bytes. There are other possibilities for which you can see the documentation. Most of those calls need to be covered by a try/catch for IOExceptions as well.

If you have any questions, please ask.
