Length of get parameters

Hi all!

Please tell me how long the GET parameter can be. Is there a limit for
each parameter itself, or a limit in the whole?
I thought there would be a maximum of 1024 characters, but it seems to
work with more.

thx

Part of the RFC2616 (@ http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt) states:

<quote>
The HTTP protocol does not place any a priori limit on the length of
a URI. Servers must be able to handle the URI of any resource they
serve, and SHOULD be able to handle URIs of unbounded length if they
provide GET-based forms that could generate such URIs. A server
SHOULD return 414 (Request-URI too long) status if a URI is longer
than the server can handle (see section 10.4.15).

Note: Servers ought to be cautious about depending on URI lengths
above 255 bytes, because some older client or proxy
implementations might not properly support these lengths.
</quote>

So, to be safe I'd try to limit the whole thing to 255 characters or
less :-)

I think it's really nice to be able to do code like someVariable = someMethod(new SomeClass("some text")); However, as method signatures are number and types of parameters, you're limited to having one constructor that accepts a single string, for example.
