Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-885) Invalid URL when using dynamic ranges
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2008 12:16:44 GMT
Invalid URL when using dynamic ranges

                 Key: IVY-885
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-beta-1
            Reporter: Jim Bonanno

Sorry to have two url issues in one day. 

We are using ivy's ranges to resolve our modules. Ivy first tries to see if the specified
version exists before listing the repository. The issue that we hit was when using the range
[1,2[. The first request is http://myhost/my-repo/org/module/ivys/ivy-[1,2[.xml.

This URL is not properly escaped, but apache apparently is very forgiving. When we hosted
the ivy repository with another web server that validated the urls the returned status code
was not a 404.

We are working around the problem by again using URI to build the URL so it gets properly
escaped. There seems to be some tricks to using the URI class. For example, the constructor
that takes a string requires the string is already rfc 2396 compliant. The other constructors
will actually escape the URL.

Here is the modifications we made to the BasicURLHandler.

        if ( url.getProtocol() == "http" || url.getProtocol() == "https") {
            try {
                URI uri = new URI(url.getProtocol(), null, url.getHost(), url.getPort(), url.getPath(),
null, null);
                url = uri.toURL();
            catch ( URISyntaxException e ) {
                IOException ioe = new IOException("Couldn't open connection to '" + url.toString()
+ "'");
                throw ioe;
        con = url.openConnection();

which results in a request http://myhost/my-repo/org/module/ivys/ivy-%5B1,2%5B.xml.
