I think it would be nice if we could have an additional support for
byte[] instead of just flat File objects in FormDataBodyPart. I think
there are situations in which we don't need to hit the disk before
sending the data through the wire (or do we?)

According to the javadoc [1] there is only a File object support.

If you agree that such feature is acceptable, than I think that either:
1. The FileDataBodyPart should be adjusted to support byte[] or,
2. Another subclass of FormDataBodyPart should be created which will
support the byte[].

Personally, I'd prefer the 2. option.

What do you think about that?
Are you open for contributions?

The idea for this feature was born in Arquillian project [2].
