HTTP REST Client string length limit?

Posted by Tim Kuehn on 03-Jun-2016 08:37

I'm working with 11.6.1 on Windows 7

I have a dataset interacting with a non-Progress DB via REST, and I just got a REPLACE / CONCAT error complaining about the string length, apparently in the RegistryBuilder part of the code. 

Are there string limits to the HTTP REST Client classes?

What I think is happening is that I'm generating a body that's close to 32K chars long, and something in the HTTP client is choking when it tries to do something with that that blows the 32K string limit.

Are you receiving or sending the dataset?

Mind sharing some code of your Web Handler? A Stack trace of the error? Are you returning the Dataset as a string or a JSON Object?

Its basically one long string in a json wrapper packaged with some information to tell the receiver what to do with it.

Its all HTTP REST - no webhandler as far as I know.

There are no special string limits. There may be issues with codepages (especially converting to US-ASCII) but those should be fixed in 11.6.2.

You should log a bug for this anyway.
