> We are using Axis 2 and the Admin console to edit some application specific parameters.
> However we found out that when the console is located behind a reverse proxy server such
as Apache HTTP server, we receive a HTTP 414 Request Too Large error when trying to modify
the parameters.
> This is due to the following :
> Our Web service uses WSDL2Java generated classes (including the skeleton) and the console
shows a generated parameter called wsdl4jDefinition which is very large (up to 12000 characters
for one of our services).
> When clicking on the button 'Change' in the console Edit parameters form, the actual
HTML form method is a GET. This means that all attributes on the form will end on the URL
and passed by to the axis2-admin/editServicepara servlet. This is also not good from a security
point of view since all parameters will appear appended to the browser url.
> The correct solution is to change the GET into a POST. Attached is the ServiceParaEdit.jsp
that contains this patch.
