Web Service question

Okay, I am having a bit of trouble finding a solution to this predicament I am in and am hoping you guys can help me. I am trying to create a SalesForce web service that will recieve a file in the form of a byte array. The service will pass in the following paramters. Product Code, file name, and a byte array containing the contents of the file being submitted.

So, how would i go about coding this solution? I know how to do this in both C# and Java, but can't seem to find any example on how to do this with APEX code. What I think the process should be is to convert the byte array back into a FileStream, then store the doucment to SalesForce using the Document object. But I have not seen a constructor for the Document object that will take in either a byte array or a Stream object.

Any ideas?

HI Kyle ,

Here is One more example in salesforce how we use the encoding util methods
String data='Testing data ';
Blob key = Crypto.generateAesKey(128);
Blob data = Blob.valueOf(data);
// It will encode in base 64
String b64Data = EncodingUtil.base64Encode(data);
// following will be use for Encrypt and Decrypt 

Blob encryptedData= Crypto.encryptWithManagedIV('AES128', key, data);
Blob decryptedData = Crypto.decryptWithManagedIV('AES128', key, encryptedData); 

//Converting the Blob into string 
String b64Decrypted = EncodingUtil.base64Encode(decryptedData);
Hope this might help you
