Send a file through webservice with multipart/form-data + metadata

Hello,
I'm trying to send a file to webservice, that only accept POST requests with multipart/form-data content type, but I didn't manager to get an appropriate result. This webservice (a provided API) accept file in one of the parts, with additionals metadata (other business information).
I've tried :
- tRest, but it doesn't seem to support multipart/form-data, even if ContentType is filled
- tHttpRequest, but as far as I understand, I had to write all the body content in a file (not straight forward)
- tFetchFile, as per message (http://www.talendforge.org/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=70691), it should work, but I don't understand how
The only way I found is to code my own component, and even it seems to work, I'm still looking for a native solution.
Do someone have any working example ?

Hi,
Have you viewed component reference TalendHelpCenter:tFileFetch with scenarios?
Best regards
