HTTP POST maximum size

I know that a HTTP GET url has some maximum length possibly constrained by the browser url textbox or the Apache/Tomcat's server limit.

Is there a configuration in Tomcat to limit the size of HTTP POSTs ?

Thanks

Pho

Short answer NO
In SOAP applications people POST multiple megabyte data streams.
I suppose you could have your servlet look for the Content-length header and close the connection if it is too large.
