could some one help me by telling me the max char size of the query string that can accompany a get request.
I am currently able to send close to 650 chars as part of the query string when an applet calls upon a servlet.is this OK?
a speedy reply would be appreciated.
thanx.
george.

The limit is set by the URL limit: URLs are limited to a length of 1024 characters, including the protocol, server name, file path, and search arguments, this limits the length of data that can be sent using the GET method...

Why dont you use the POST method??
It does not append the information to the URL, so there is no limit to the length of data you can send using the POST method...
