Subject:Signature capture via Android and CWS OCX

Greetings, all.

Has anyone used the Corel Web Server to handle signature-captured BMP or 
SVG files?

I currently have an Android app that ties into the CWS OCX to update my 
Paradox data directly.  But, I don't know what to do with the BMP/SVG 
files.  I don't think I want to save them as Memo/BLOB fields in 
Paradox, after seeing how easily that can get corrupted.  But, if I save 
them as individual files on the drive, this seems like it would quickly 
become unmanageable.

Any thoughts?

Also, how should I setup the CWS OCX to even process these files?  This 
is a sample of my current transaction upload via a POST:


Would I just add a new field containing the encoded BMP/SVG contents, 
and then split that off and 'save' it somehow?
