Date Mon, 31 Mar 2008 14:08:25 GMT


Alex Karasulu updated DIRSERVER-731:

    Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.5.2)

Postpone again.  Until this is applied the server will be prone to DoS attacks.

> We really need to implement a streming of big objects, like JpegPhoto, otherwise the
server can be killed trying to manage them.
> The problem is that they are stored entirely in memory, and this is not an option for
megabytes of data in a JVM. We should find a way to work with MINA to send bytes on the fly
(for instance by packets of 8kb). The very same when we receive huge data : we should store
them somwhere on the disk instead of creating a byte[] large enough to store the data.
