I'm purging an object together with the datastreams in one call using the purge() method on apim (datastreams are base64 encoded). I'm doing it to avoid to use addDatastream as it requires location of the datastream, which again force me to code an resource availabe through some http server, which will return a content of the datastream. Then again when I'm modyfying datastreams i'm only interested doing it by values to avoid the previous issue. Is it posssible to do it that way? I'm using webservices to access fedora.
