We are using Jetty to run an Apache Solr index. We've had some queries that have grown way beyond the previously expected maximum length, and are now having issues where most queries are not returning any data because the server doesn't respond (browser says "Connection reset").
These requests are not being made through a browser, they're being made programmatically using the Apache_Solr_Service PHP library. The application is expecting queries to come in as HTTP GET requests, so simply switching to a POST will not solve this problem.
How can we increase the maximum allowed HTTP GET query length in Jetty?
