Subject RE: AJP with HTTPD - Buffer Size on long URLs
Date Mon, 30 Nov 2009 08:10:21 GMT
The RFC specs a maximum URL size of 4k. That should be enough for everybody.

Note that you can mix and match as required: Use the URL portion of your request to identify
the target of the request, and put the additional data in the POST body.
