Re: Set maxHttpHeaderSize in tomcat server as a parameter

Daniel Mikusa

Have you tried the support that's already in the Java buildpack for customizing Tomcat configuration?

This lets you configure all aspects of Tomcat's config, not just the header size.

Hello Sajjad, 

your expected changes are available in my git repo.  Please have a look I will make a pull request for the same.

Note: by default, Apache community give 8kb as default header size, also I prefer to keep 64 kb as default.

Hi there,

We have a service that gets http requests with big header size, so I was wondering if we can just expose a parameter to set the maximum http header size in tomcat/conf/server.xml to be set by a new option in tomcat.yml file (e.g. "maxHttpHeaderSize" under "tomcat").
I can create a pull-request for this.

I'll appreciate your input ;)
