Can the GenericSoapPort Using the GET_FILE Service get a Base64 Encoded File in the Response? (Doc ID 2124843.1)

Is there a way to get the Base64 encoded file in the GET_FILE response using the GenericSoapPort (WebService SOAP to connect to the WebCenter Contet (WCC) server) in a Fusion Applications environment?

Reference these KM notes:
Oracle WebCenter Content (WCC) Document Transfer Utility Readme (Doc ID 1624063.1)
Oracle Document Transfer Utility - Testing the GenericSoapPort connection (Doc ID 1969506.1)

The connection works, however, the expected Base64 encoded file is not returned.  The response from the GET_FILE service over the GenericSoapPort does not return a Base64 encoded file as the WCC WSDLs do.

The GenericSoapPort uses MTOM with XOP to return an "attachment".  The response includes a link to the file being requested.
