Subject RE: SOAP message size limit with Axis
Date Wed, 12 May 2004 07:28:39 GMT

I think the problem isn't the size of the soap message, but the number of elements it has.

I had a problem with messages around 1 MB whose were formed by an Array of strings with 80.000
items, so I had memory DoS problems.

The solution was to implement an Axis Handler to Limit the Request size.

Thats a pretty large SOAP message - I hope you have lots of RAM in the 
server machine.

I should say its a large message to parse into a DOM - not much is too 
large if you can stream parse it in one pass.
