Hi everybody,
I have a servlet. Its buffer size (I used the API - getBufferSize to get the buffer size of the response stream )is 1024 KB.
I filled it up with data more than 1024KB and it still does not give any error (I was expecting some buffer overflow errors) and displays the data properly on the browser.
Is it normal ?

Buffer holds the data temporarily before it is flushed to the ouputstream ( IN this case the browser) .. so when you have more than 1024 KB of data, some data is sent to the browser...
This is perfectly normal behavior
