What do you want to do with the file data? You could change it into a base64 string ...

The way you want to do it is as far I know impossible. With html5 you could encode the data from your multipart response into a base64 string and display it, or otherwise to keep it client side to send it back to the server a later time.

For Html content or text it is possible to display it as innerhtml in a panel.

But other file types you must launch from your server. You could do that by adding an iframe to a panel and set the src to the the webservice which writes the binary data with the corresponding headers (mime-type) to the client.

To put it short, it is not possible to display files in the UI by getting it in a multi-part server response. First thing to know anyway, what kind of file types you want to display?
