Subject [jira] Updated: (CODEC-36) [codec] Support of Base 64 Encoding with URL and Filename Safe Alphabet
Date Fri, 14 Jul 2006 05:31:31 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CODEC-36?page=all ]

Henri Yandell updated CODEC-36:
-------------------------------

    Bugzilla Id:   (was: 31961)
    Fix Version: 1.4

Lining up for 1.4 - though I think we can punt it to 1.5 if nobody offers a patch and there's
no itch to fix a minor.

>      Project: Commons Codec
>         Type: Improvement

>  Environment: Operating System: other
> Platform: All
>     Reporter: Alain Gilbert
>     Priority: Minor
>      Fix For: 1.4

> The default Base64 alphabet is not safe to use for URL query parameters since 
> the '+' character is converted to a ' ' (space) when the parameter value is 
> retrieved from the request (ServeltRequest.getParameter(String) 
> and .getParameterValues(String)).
> It is possible to post-process the result of Base64.encodeBase64 but I would 
> rather prefer to specify an alternate alphabet or call another method.
> Refer to http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3548.txt section 4 for more information.
