Subject [jira] Reopened: (COUCHDB-883) Wrong document returned due to incorrect URL decoding

Taras Puchko reopened COUCHDB-883:
----------------------------------


Robert, you are wrong. What "uri escaping rules" are you talking about? 

I've specifically pointed to the spec. Read "3.3. Path Component" and "2.2. Reserved Characters".

There is no rule that makes a plus sign be interpreted as a space. It's a compatibility behavior
applicable ONLY to query parameter values.

>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: HTTP Interface
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
>         Environment: Kubuntu 10.4, Firefox 3.6.8

> I have two documents in my database: "a b" and "a+b". The first can be retrieved via
"/mydb/a%20b" and the second via "/mydb/a%2Bb".
> When I enter "/mydb/a b" in the browser it automatically encodes it so the correct document
is returned. But when I enter "/mydb/a+b" the URL is sent intact since "+" is a valid character
in a path segment according to [1]. The problem is that "GET /mydb/a+b" makes CouchDB return
the document with id "a b" and not the intended one, which is against the URI spec .
> For an informal description of URL encoding one may refer to [2].
