Mary JohnsonSubject: Base 64 encoded data embedded in XML
Author: Mary Johnson

Question: Is there a way to automate the decoding of base 64 embedded data in XML?

Background: I have an XML file with some of the tags containing base 64 encoded data.

I can manually go in and extract the data and use a decoder to convert from base 64 to binary to get the actual .jpg file, but then need to modify the XML manually to reference the new filename.

I am wondering if there is some software out there that will let me automate this or if there are internal functions I can use to decode on the fly.

I am using Dreamweaver 8 that has advanced XML support, but do not even know if this is possible to do in an automated fashion without writing custom php (which I don't want to do).

The individual XML tag looks like this:

<BinaryData Encoding="Base64">/9j/4AAQSkZJRgABAQEAtAC0AAD/4RJIaHR0cDovL2 ... rest of data removed ...//2Q==</BinaryData>

Hi Mary,

If you need to support both Mozilla and IE you have to generate a physical file for each images.

The attached example shows how to convert base64 text into binary and save on a file using the Saxon XSLT processor.

I ran this code in my environment using Dreamweaver Cold Fusion and got the following error:

MM_XSLTransform error.
Transformation Error.
Transforming
java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: For extension function, could not find method java.lang.String.new([ExpressionContext,] ).

The file "Pedruzzi.jpg" gets created but is 0 size.

I think the error is in the following line:

<xsl:variable name="b64" select="b64:new(string(Photo))"/>

The example i posted uses an extension fucntion only available with Saxon as stated.

Which XSLT processor Cold Fusion uses?

Does it support java extension function?

You can use the attached XSLT (xsl-property-test.xsl) to see the XSLT processor name and version.

I also attached a version that uses an open source base64 decoder/encoder that was able to run with different processors: XalanJ 2.5.2, Saxon 6.x and Saxon 8.6.

You will need unpuck base64.zip and configure your CLASSPATh to include the direcotory base64

I ran your xsl-property-test.xsl using my local Cold Fusion server and found that the Vendor URL is http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j and the product version is Xalan Java 2.4.1. The environment on my shared web host server differs in that the product version is Xalan Java 2.5.1

I have installed the code and am getting the error:

Base64 (Unsupported major.minor version 49.0)

I am assuming this is because you gave me code compatible for XalanJ 2.5.2 and I am below that on both platforms.

How can you ever keep these things synchronized? Should I just try to find a compiled version for my Xalan Java 2.4.1?

Nope, the error is because I compiled base64.java using JDK 1.5. and you are running Java 1.4.

Try the attached version

hope this helps

Ivan, you are awesome! I couldn't have done this without you. Everything is working. I had a huge learning curve on this but your instructions were simple and complete. Thank you very much.

Hi Ivan,

I downloaded the open-source file and installed jdk 1.5. I was unable to get IE to convert the sample employee file using the style sheet. It errors out with Base64 does not contain any functions. I have added the directory Base64 to the classpath on my laptop. Any idea what I may be doing wrong?

The test files (xml and xsl) are in c:\dxl and the base64 files are in a subdirectory base64 to that directory. I'm a noob with all this, so any help you can provide would be great.

Thanks!

There are examples on how to do this with the Stylus Studio
built-in Base64 adapter on our web site.
