For very complex forms, encoding the allocated ID string results in a java.io.UTFDataFormatException

                 Key: TAPESTRY-2758
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAPESTRY-2758
             Project: Tapestry
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Framework
    Affects Versions: 4.1.6
            Reporter: Howard M. Lewis Ship

    *   java.io.UTFDataFormatException
      java.io.ObjectOutputStream$BlockDataOutputStream#writeUTF (ObjectOutputStream.java:2125)

A little digging found out that this can only happen for exceptionally large forms.  The relevent


  public String encodeIdState()
        return CompressedDataEncoder.encodeString(_idAllocator.toExternalString());


    public static String encodeString(String input)
        Defense.notNull(input, "input");

        if (HiveMind.isBlank(input))
            return "";

        try {
            ByteArrayOutputStream bosPlain = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
            ByteArrayOutputStream bosCompressed = new ByteArrayOutputStream();

            GZIPOutputStream gos = new GZIPOutputStream(bosCompressed);
            TeeOutputStream tos = new TeeOutputStream(bosPlain, gos);
            ObjectOutputStream oos = new ObjectOutputStream(new BufferedOutputStream(tos));

            boolean useCompressed = bosCompressed.size() < bosPlain.size();

            byte[] data = useCompressed ? bosCompressed.toByteArray() : bosPlain.toByteArray();
            byte[] encoded = Base64.encodeBase64(data);

            String prefix = useCompressed ? GZIP_BYTESTREAM_PREFIX : BYTESTREAM_PREFIX;

            return prefix + new String(encoded);
        catch (Exception ex) {
            throw new ApplicationRuntimeException(IoMessages.encodeFailure(input, ex), ex);


	void writeUTF(String s, long utflen) throws IOException {
	    if (utflen > 0xFFFFL) {
		throw new UTFDataFormatException();
	    writeShort((int) utflen);
	    if (utflen == (long) s.length()) {
	    } else {

So for strings larger than 65K, we get the exception.  Yes, that's an incredibly large form!
