    Multipart data

    You need to pass the attachment files in the HTTP POST method as multipart data. In the HTTP post method, MultipartRequestEntity should be set as RequestEntity. The MultipartRequestEntity parameter should be instantiated using FilePart. FilePart (org.apache.commons.httpclient.methods.multipart.FilePart) should contain the details (such as the file name) of the attachment file.
