Maximum length/size of an Arbitrary Message
« on: September 30, 2014, 07:27:18 pm »

Hi, what is the maximum numbers of chars in an Arbitrary Message (only the message/payload itself). Are there solutions if the message is longer than the maximum? What would you propose?

Thanks. What do you propose to do if we want/need to send longer messages?

U don't have any choice except splitting messages. Use referenced transactions to "link" different chunks, but remember that u can't build long chains this way (only 10 chunks allowed IIRC).

depends on your need but one solution to built unlimited chains would be to add a small ref. header and store the chunks e.g. in reverse order in case you need a strictly sequential rebuilt entrypoint.

an enhanced header could also provide dynamic rebuilt routes and with further enhancements it could ref to additional resources e.g. source code with special rebuilt and evaluation rulesets in case
you need dynamic data treatments. the hive client (helix) is using this approach to evaluate and run signed source code (as plugins or even whole updates) directly from the blockchain during runtime.

thanks to both of you. one or two messages should be sufficient for our need, the referenced transaction will do the trick.
