HTTP send a jpeg.

Ok,

 

So I have a Blackberry application that captures a persons signature via a stylus and the returns a bitmap upon request (there is a cool case you can put on blackberries for stylus stuff).

 

My problem is, getting the bitmap off the phone to a central server. I'd like to 'append' the image to some pre-exisitng messages that get sent back to the server E.G.

 

Http://someUrl.php?someValue=blah&appendImage=base64

 

Should I just convert the bitmap to a byte array, then base64 encode it and append it as a string?

 

The alternative I guess is to try and use the mime multipart type. I dont really understand what I would be doing with the mime message though.

 

Any pointers?

Re: HTTP send a jpeg.

You can create an encoded byte array using EncodedImage (see API docs).

 

You could then POST this data to your PHP script.
