hi all, I have got a condition where I have to pass a string to a web service. ealier this service was accepting parameter as CSV file but now that's taking that parameter as String. I have to pass the String with the condition that size of String cant be greater than 80 MB. I know this is bad design but cant think of any other option at present(due to time constraint and contract with the web service). My question is how can we decide the size of String doesn't cross 80 MB(It can be somewhat less for that matter). I hope that is based on JVM allocation of memory. but I want that independant of that. I searched internet but couldn't find any pointer towards that.
