Description

Recently I tried (a few times) to upload a large "run-kar" from the Workflow Run Manager in Kepler to the KeplerDev metacat, but get the following stacktrace from Kepler. The kar tpc03-veld-condition-woody-run1.kar, is ~1M, and the karXml (the metadata) is ~1.9M. The run kar is created by running the following workflow once, and then clicking on the run row in the WRM and selecting upload:
https://code.ecoinformatics.org/code/kruger/trunk/workflows/tpc03-veld-condition/tpc03-veld-condition-woody.kar

Uploading smaller run-kars works.
Jing and I took a look at catalina.out on dev and see the following associated errors to do with 'Post too large':

#1 Updated by Jing Tao almost 11 years ago

I searched online and found:

Apache Tomcat by default sets a limit on the maximum size of HTTP POST requests it accepts. In Tomcat 5, this limit is set to 2 MB. When you try to upload files larger than 2 MB, this error can occur.

The solution is to reconfigure Tomcat to accept larger POST requests, either by increasing the limit, or by disabling it. This can be done by editing [TOMCAT_DIR]/conf/server.xml. Set the Tomcat configuration parameter maxPostSize for the HTTPConnector to a larger value (in bytes) to increase the limit. Setting it to 0 in will disable the size check.

So on kepler-dev, i added a new parameter - maxPostSize with value equaling 0 on connect 8009. Then I asked derik to test. It worked.
