We haven't implemented the File.* class yet.
Alternatively, although it's a bit of work, what about using Basic.* to
encode the file transfer?
some months ago, I experimented with what this might look like. I'm not
sure if the specific proposal is acceptable as a file transfer service,
of course, but in my opinion layering functionality such as file
transfer over top of Basic.*, in a standard way, seems like the right
thing to do, rather than having it part of the core messaging protocol.
(Actually, 108.redhat.com needs a login; I've put the same text up on
our dev wiki, at https://dev.rabbitmq.com/wiki/AlternativeFileTransfer)
Comments on the proposal are welcome.
