About EAI File Streaming
Siebel Business Applications support streaming of EAI requests and responses encountered. This feature allows the Siebel Web Engine (SWE) and the EAI Object Manager (OM) to process Web service calls that involve large requests or responses. Large requests and responses can occur when inserting or querying file attachments by way of a Web service. By transferring data internally in 100-KB chunks, the memory footprints of the Siebel Web Engine and EAI Object Manager processes are reduced and system scalability is improved.
This topic describes the streaming process for inbound EAI requests and outbound responses.
