We have a requirement wherein an IPAD application will access content (PDF/DOC/PPT) stored in Documentum repository through Java webservices. The content will be pretty large in size so transmitting all that in one go could be a problem. so what we are planning to do it to break the content file in chunks and then send them over the network. Then the IPAD application will compile those chunks to create the complete content file.

can someone please let me know how this can be done.

Thank You

There are all sorts of programs splitting the files into parts on different platforms,
you can also write such a program in Java, if necessary. However, how would you deal with all those pieces
on the receiving end - do you already have iPad application which would combine pieces together?
If yes, then maybe splitting should be done in agreement with what it prefers. If not, then it is probably a bigger deal i
to have this compile on iPad.

In general any internet transmission will anyway split your file while transmitting, maybe you want to
think twice before introducing this overhead of splitting. It is only if it will be failing during transmission
of big documents, it may make sense. Well, if it takes days for one file, maybe folks will be travelling
around with the iPad, then it may indeed be good to split either.
