Subject Re: JK connector fails with long URLs
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2009 13:53:18 GMT

Additional info:
- Machines are IIS 5 on Windows 2000 Server
- Though the same happens on my XP laptop
- The JK log shows this error message, with the line number varying between
JK versions, here is the 1.2.27 one:
[error] jk_isapi_plugin.c (1852): error while getting the url

Is this a known bug? 

Note: on Windows, IE 6 and 7 do not seem to support URLs with more than 2048
characters. The problem shows on Firefox and Chrome only, where this limit
is not present. For the records, Opera just does not open such a long

Thank you,
