Goal

How to set an unlimited size for a url field for a Basic Asset?

The documentation says that you can:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29542_01/doc.1111/e29634/data_designbasictype.htm#WBCSD1507

Table 15-2 INPUT TYPE Parameter
"You can specify an unlimited size for a url field that is edited via a TEXTAREA field by not specifying a value for the MAXLENGTH parameter."

However, when this is implemented you get an error when trying to create an
asset:

"The text you have entered in the {basic_asset}:url(somename) field is too long. The text will be truncated to Variables.maxlength characters."
