maximum length of variable?

Anyone know how to find out the maximum length of a variable? I'm creating a script in a custom code and storing the value in a variable X, and then executing bat file with contents $X$. But what if the script gets really long? How many characters can I put in the variable? I can't seem to find anything useful in the documentation.

I'm not aware of any limitation, we use variables to store pretty long text strings such as instructions to the user, error messages etc.
I would assume that, since the tool is Java-based, the maximum string size is that of Java (which is, for all practical uses, unlimited).
