I want to increase the size limitation of the get() method in the query string which is practically not possible.I have a JSP page which has 45 hidden variables and i m using the GET() method,i can't use POST() as i have another pagination functionality which gets affected if i use POST().When 'GET' method is used, IE 6.0 is not able to take all the information because of it's size limitation with GET method. The same code is working fine with Netscape. The reason is Netscape allows much data to be carried with 'GET'.This is a browser specific issue i guess.I can't do even without those hidden variables.Therefore kindly suggest me as how can we approach to the issue and solve it.URGENT

Welcome to JavaRanch.

Please read this regarding the the use or words like "URGENT".

One solution that comes to mind the use of server sessions. Since those fields are hidden I assume that they don't change from page to page, and could be kept on the server instead.

You can not change this, not sure why you would need to use so many hidden variables when most people would code this stuff with session on the server.

IE is different from Netscape which is different from Firefox which is different from Opera. Get is used to pass a small amount of information while POST is used for a large amount.
