Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-4427) Fix URI definition for camel-irc to provide valid URIs
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2011 12:11:08 GMT


Hadrian Zbarcea commented on CAMEL-4427:

Per the [URI spec|] section 2.2, "," is a reserved character,
so I also propose:
9. Implement either one of the following. Replace "," as a list separator with " " (which
encoded can become a "+") so URIs would contain: "channels=camel+activemq+karaf" instead of
"channels=camel,activemq,karaf". Another alternative would be to have multiple channel parametersm
like: "irc://"
which is cleaner, yet more verbose.

> Hash signs '#' are not quite allowed in URIs. While they do mark a URI fragment, a URI
cannot have more than one fragment (and hence '#' signs) and URI parameters must appear before
the fragment.
> The [IRC spec|] mandates channel names to
start with either a '&' or a '#', both not allowed in a URI (i.e. need to be escaped).
I am proposing the following changes that will make camel-irc URIs valid. Current URIs will
still be supported but deprecated until 3.0.
> The changes/clarifications are:
> 1. Current syntax is supported, yet deprecated
> 2. Current syntax with '#' symbols properly encoded is supported (i.e. a channel name
will be "%23camel" instead of "camel"
> 3. Make the '#' symbol optional (i.e. "channels=camel,activemq" is equivalent with "channels=%23camel,%23activemq").
That makes URIs simpler, if the '#' is missing camel-irc will prepend exacly one '#'.
> 4. For channels that start with '&' or double "##", like [freenode non-primary channels]
encoding is mandatory.
> 5. The userInfo part always represents the username, which could be different than the
nick. The documentation is not clear on that. By default the nick is the same as the username.
> 6. Username is mandatory.
> 7. Deprecate the "username" parameter, it must be supplied in the userInfo part of the
> 8. IRC URIs are URLs not URNs; i.e. the scheme must be followed by "://", not just ":".
> I will update the code to preProcess() camel-irc URIs to follow the rules above and update
the documentation.
