Subject Re: Ampersand in URI query parameter not working (CAMEL-4857 doesn't fix)
Date Thu, 11 Oct 2012 15:30:14 GMT
I will try to take a look at your example later today. The double 
encoding issue was there from the beginning of camel. Due to the limited 
number of components at the time, we didn't see the edge cases very 
well, and later on we only worked around the once we encountered. 
Realistically, a proper fix will only come in 3.0.
