A single remote call is encapsulated in a GIOP message, the size of which is limited to an unsigned CORBA Long, so 32bits. Subtract from that your request header size, which might be a few dozens of bytes.

However a single invocation may be split across multiple GIOP message fragments, and therefore effectively unlimited.
