I am in the early feasability phase of looking at use cases for a Corba client written in Java which will need to occasionally catch exceptions generated by the server implementation which may contain quite verbose summaries of the failure which occurred (basically a report). One way of tackling this might be to have the client set a state which requires it to perform a followup operation which retrieves a file containing the detailed error record.
However, are there any length restrictions typically for the size of exception Strings returned when a Corba (Java idl invoked) operation throws or raises and exception? I am guessing that the exception String instance and contents are serialized and sent across the wire using RMI-IIOP and there wouldn't be any Corba transport specific limits to the size of the exception string sent back to the client.
Sorry if this sounds naive.
