hi guys,
We have a scenario to share with you.

we`ve a service that has a funcionality of generate a PDF file. This means that his response content-type is a application/pdf

The highlights of our architecture is something like this:
APP -> IBM Mobile First Server -> CA API Gateway -> Backend Service


But in this case we`re considering change the architecture to this:
APP -> Backend Service


We`re are considering to change this topology because we`re worried about the overload of these two layers (Mobile First and CA API Gateway) versus the real benefits of them.


What are the points to considere to take a decision about it. Could you help me?


Has someone using CA API Gateway in the middle to service that response a binary? Is there some issue with it?
