Hi guys,
I ran into an odd problem I've never seen before. I'm creating a page that will allow employees to input about 2000 characters of information into a textarea within a form. However, when attempting to submit the form, literally nothing happens. If the textarea only contains, say 100 characters, it will submit perfectly fine. However, when it reaches a certain limit, nothing happens.

I was wondering if any of you knew whether or not there is a limit of some sort to the size of the input one is allowed to submit. If so, where would the limit be? Is it the browser? The server it is being submitted to? Also, I'm trying to find a decent work around for this. If you guys have any suggestions I'm all ears.

FYI, I'm submitting the form to a servlet with Tomcat and Apache is my Web Server.

I'd be very greatful of any help you guys could provide.

Thanks,
-Tyler

Be sure to put method="post" on your form. The default is "get".
