Comment #6 on issue 243 by ken...@google.com: Improve mergeDelimitedFrom in
the java Impl to setSizeLimit on the CodedInputStream
Ah, I see. You are talking about individual messages over 64MB... for
some reason I thought you were talking about the case where a stream of
messages is overall longer than 64MB... I am failing at reading
comprehension today. (Or, yesterday, as it were.)
Well, the proper solution is not to use messages over 64MB. :) Really,
the 64MB limit was chosen to be ridiculously high -- we recommend not
letting messages get over 1MB. You should find a way to split your
messages up, so that you can read and process smaller chunks at a time.
That said, I suppose we should have some way around this, so people can
work around the problem temporarily until they can get the proper solution
