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?
- The Fusion Applications March 2016 monthly patch caused a change where the native WCC (UCM) WSDLs are no longer available.
- The endpoints are not reachable with a standard user: https://(POD).fs.(CountryID).oraclecloud.com/_dav/cs/idcplg.
- Require the GenericSoapPort with the web services being used.

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.
