    Long URL for gradient resource problematic under IIS 6.0

    Chris Lowe Apprentice


      I have a RichFaces application deployed behind IIS 6.0. IIS 6.0 has a URL length restriction of 260 chars which is causing the request for a gradient image resource to fail with HTTP status of 400 (bad URL). The URL for the resource is massive!


      My application functions okay, but looks somewhat bland without the gradients :(

      Does anyone know how I can get around this? On IIS, I tried upping the Http.sys UrlSegmentMaxLength value, but it didn't resolve the issue.

      Is it really necessary for such a long URL for the gradient resource? It's not a Base64 encoding of the actual image is it?
