Subject [codec] any takers for CODEC-75 patch?
Date Thu, 28 May 2009 04:05:55 GMT

I created CODEC-75 (url-safe Base64) and attached a 20KB patch to the
ticket.  Anyone interested in committing this?

The patch improves codec's base64 handling in two ways:

1. Ability to decode base64 streams which are missing the final
padding characters.

2. Introduces "Base64.encodeBase64URLSafe()" method.

It appears (very cursory look-see on my part) that URL-Safe is part of
the reason Hadoop went elsewhere for its Base64:
