Default String as Parameter

I am trying to design .NET Web Service which will be accessed from Oracle BPEL.

The Web Service will take XML data and I have to parse the XML data in web service.

If I use string as a parameter for the web service, I would like to know whether there is a limitation for the maximum length of a string to be passed to a web service.
The size of XML ranges from 80 to 150 KB.

Is there any other alternate way to pass the xml data from Oracle BPEL to a .NET web service.
 Thanks for the help

Is it being GETed or POSTed? A post operation should take quite a bit.

There is a default limit on 'uploads' to an ASP.Net web page of 4MB, but this can be increased if required:


There isn't a specific limit on the size of a string variable in either .Net or SOAP, but obviously be careful how you process it so you use the least amount of memory.
