Is there any limit as to the size of XML file that can be sent in a Web Service parameter?

Dear Authorities:

Is there a limit as to the size of XML file that can be safely sent in a Web
Service as parameter? Realizing that XML is just a string, how many
characters can be safely transmitted to a Web Service? Or is there NO
limit?

Someone should know the answer to this question? Please reply.

Sincerely,

Hi,

There is no real limitation on this, however... keep in mind that:

- The larger the message, the more time. Clients might encounter
time-outs.
- Windows (32b) system assigns 4Gb a process, 2Gb Kernel & 2Gb User.
Use a streaming model or you might run into memory issues.
- The WebServices system tries to "Serialize" & "Deserializ e"
objects<->xml. Having a huge XML will cause a huge deserialize
process.

Hope this helps,

Marvin Smit.

Thank you Marvin. A detail like that is very important to know in planning
what could or should be transmitted using a Web Service.

Hi,

if you want to "just transport large amounts of data" (so no real
object<->xml conversion), you're probably better of using WSE with
DIME.

Dear Authorities: I realize that in communicating with a Web Service, one is essentially passing a string as a parameter. Is there a limit over the Internet how long a parameter string can be? Or can the string be of an unlimited length, and is then simply divided up into packets? Is there a danger of loosing data if the string being passed in a parameter

Hi, on my Apache server I want to limit access to a certain file ouput (from php/MySQL) to just one IP. The idea is that users from another site should click a link whic redirects them to my special page on my server. Only those who access my page from one particulary URL are allowed to see my file. All others are denied. Is it possible to solve this with a .htaccess file, or do I need a php solution?
