---------------------------

             Summary: Path parameters containing semicolon are truncated due to missing encoding
                 Key: CXF-6015
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-6015
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: JAX-RS
    Affects Versions: 3.0.1, 2.7.12
         Environment: Apache Tomcat / 7.0.54
Eclipse Jetty / 9.2.2
            Reporter: Daniel


If a REST service uses path parameters, these parameters must not contain any semicolon as
the parameter value gets truncated after the semicolon by many runtime environments. For that
reason especially the semicolon should be encoded while building the client proxy.

I pinned this issue down to the usage of {{org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.utils.HttpUtils.pathEncode(String)}}
during the creation of the request URI. Path parameters are encoded using a fixed list of
characters ({{=@/:!$&\'(),;~}}) that are preserved in {{pathEncode(String)}}. While this
is fine/needed for encoding a complete path it leads to problems if used for encoding single
elements of a path like path parameters.

Attached you'll find a minimal example project containing a simple REST service that returns
the path provided parameters. If deployed on localhost:8080, a call to {{http://localhost:8080/cxf-test-0.1/rest/cxf-test/R&uuml;diger/R&uuml%3Bdiger}}
will result in {{anAttribute=R&uuml, anotherAttribute=R&uuml;diger}} to be returned.
