Subject Request Body Greater Than 8192
Date Fri, 11 Jul 2008 21:28:55 GMT
I have an interesting problem and can't seem to find the answer anywhere.  We have Tomcat 5.5.26
running on a SuSE Linux server.  Tomcat is doing SOAP requests.

I get the body of the request with the following code:

BufferedReader reader = req.getReader();
while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
   message += line.trim();

Sometimes we get a SOAP request in that has a body greater than 8192 bytes.  But, no matter
what I try, "message" will always have a length of 8192.  It won't read past the 8192 barrier.
 Now, I know that the default size of the BufferedReader is 8192.  I've changed this in the
BufferedReader constructor and that didn't help.

I'm hoping someone knows how to fix this problem.
