File Attachments support with outbound messaging



Can someone assist me in suggesting how can i transfer file attachments from sales force to a third party java application.


We are trying to integrate salesforce to our custom app where salesforce can pass some string values AND few file attachments to our custom java app. On doing some research, we saw something like outbound messaging. Can someone assist if that supports file attachments as well?


Any suggestions how can that be accomplished while integrating with salesforce?

You can not directly send file with out bound message. 

What you can think alternatively.. 
Once you receive the out bound message from the JAva application , you can use the session and make a Call to SFDC through either SFDC Partner or Enterprise Web-services and Get the file from SFDC.
