For example if an user enters a data which is 10 characters long. And we have to restrict it to 5 characters. Is it possible in wireshark?

Your question is very vague. What data is being entered by the user where?

I am sorry. I have developed a very small web application using java, jsp and tomcat. In that if a user enters a user name of more than 10 characters, can wireshark restrict it to exactly 10 characters? The request is a http one. I am new to wireshark. I was asked this question by one of our teacher at our clg.

Wireshark is a passive sniffer. It will dissect and display whatever information is made available to it, so if the data contains more than 10 characters, then that's what Wireshark will show you.
