Subject Re: Tomcat 7 + exception while adding cookies
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2011 15:49:14 GMT
Hi Mallick, hi all,

To me it appears this setting is ignored by tc 7.0.x. I created a servlet:

protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse
response) throws ServletException, IOException {
final int NUM_COOKIES = 500;
 for (int i = 0; i < NUM_COOKIES; i++) {
Cookie c = new Cookie("foo" + i, UUID.randomUUID().toString());
 "<html><head></head><body><h1>A ton of cookies</h1></body>"
System.out.println("sent " + NUM_COOKIES);

Accessing it causes the exception to be thrown. Whereas tc 6.0.33 behaviour
is changed by increasing "maxHttpHeaderSize", 7.0.0, 7.0.14, 7.0.21 ignore
the setting.
for tc 6 setting maxHttpHeaderSize="8193" will cause OOB exception at index
for tc 7 OOB always happens at 8192.

I first blamed eclipse wtp doing sth. wrong when applying the
configuration. Therefore, I checked the connector's jmx properties and to
my surprise I could no longer find a property called "maxHttpHeaderSize"
for the connector (comparing tc 6 to 7).

Was it dropped by intention? I skimmed through the changelogs but couldn't
find an explanation . . .

Afaik as I know this is a configurable setting for (at least most)

Best Regards,
