parameter name / value length issue

hello,

i do know that there is a length limit of the url (255 chars), so i can't use GET, because i have to pass a high number of parameters, which names are 9 chars long and values are 21 chars long.

i'm wondering if there are any limits on the parameter name/value length, or a total length/size of parameters that can be passed without being truncated by server, or something like this....

i can't find in api that there is any limit, but still, if my app designed the way it needs to pass a lot of parameters with long names (9 chars) and long values (21 chars).

can this cause problems?

if not, is it a good taste to build app that can use POST request only?

thanks

Lidia,
It's ok to just use the POST request.
