How can I download, change, save and reattach an attachment in a Web database?

I have a Web database, and I need to change the content of an attachment. I need three steps:
  • Download the file
  • Modify the file
  • Save the file and reattach the file
I know that, for example in the iNotes database, you can double-click the attachment, made your changes and save these changes directly in the Notes document. What is the best technique to get this functionality, and where I can find information to develop it?
I would look to third-party tools here. I know that a company called Documentaal has a product called Bowtie WebControl that should do what you want. There are a couple of similar products available, like those from Swing Software.
