Send pdf file to workflow through web dynpro.


Hi All,
I have a web dynpro component, with this component i am raising a request, which will go to multiple level of approvals(for this triggering workflow from web dynpro).
Now i want to send a pdf file as an attachment to approvers work items.
For this i have used File Upload UI element, and i have binded data property of this upload UI element with an attribute of type Xstring.
Now can you please help me to send this file to workflow.
I am able to send a pdf file as an attachment through executable report (SE38), but same functionality is not working from web dynpro.
Code used in executable report is as below:
DATA: t_data_tab TYPE TABLE OF x255,
bin_size TYPE i,
buffer_x TYPE xstring,
buffer_zip TYPE xstring,
filename TYPE string VALUE 'C:\Documents and Settings\My Documents\Downloads\IT.pdf'.
filename                      = filename
filetype                      = 'BIN'
filelength                    = bin_size
  HEADER                        =
data_tab                      = t_data_tab.
**get xstring
    input_length = bin_size
    buffer       = buffer_x
    binary_tab   = t_data_tab.
IF sy-subrc <> 0.
WORKITEMID = '000000401208'.
  ATT_TXT              =
    ATT_BIN              = buffer_x
   LANGUAGE             = SY-LANGU
   DO_COMMIT            = 'X'
  RETURN_CODE          =
   ATT_ID               = ZSWR_ATT_ID
if sy-subrc = 0.
But function "GUI_UPLOAD" is not working in web dynpro.


Try out this code :
FileInputStream is = new FileInputStream(file);
      long length = file.length();
      byte[] bytes = new byte[(int)length];
      long bytesRead =;
      if (bytesRead < length)
       throw new IOException("Could not completely read file "+file.getName());
Create a context attribute of binary type and assign the read data to it and bind the dataSource property of your File Upload and Download properties to this context Attribute.
