RE: Request is getting truncated by my WAS App server

I am sure now that it is performing a post because I see it coming into
the app server as a post. However the XMLData parameter is coming into
the post inside the header and NOT the body. Their must be a 2k limit
on the header size of my server, because it truncates it down to 2k.

ok, what i should have said was that your original data sent was a GET,
but the code you list below does a post. are you sure that this is the
code that made the request, and not some other code? or perhaps there is
something in your older version of libcurl that made this perform a get

>>> printf("%s",pTURL);
>>> curl_easy_setopt(localcurlHndl, CURLOPT_URL,
>>> "" );
>>> curl_easy_setopt(localcurlHndl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS,pTURL);
>>> curl_easy_setopt(localcurlHndl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE,
>>> strlen(pTURL));
>>> curl_easy_perform(localcurlHndl);

can you get a tcpdump or ethereal dump of the communication with a
working transaction from your browser and a non-working one from your
curl app? i find comparing those (in ethereal) is most helpful.
