Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-6015) Path parameters containing semicolon are truncated due to missing encoding
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2014 13:17:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-6015?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14140449#comment-14140449
] 

Sergey Beryozkin commented on CXF-6015:
---------------------------------------

It is not Tomcat or Jetty that strips ";digger" but the JAX-RS server runtime, because 'digger'
becomes a matrix parameter without a value.
As I said, UriBuilder.path is expected to accept path values with matrix parameters, so it
can not be encoded by default.
May be a property can be introduced, "url.encode.client.parameters"...Actually, there's a
better way, register custom JAX-RS 2.0 ParamConverter for String and do the URL encoding there,
that should work, give it a try please

> 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 provided path parameters. If deployed on localhost:8080, a call to {{http://localhost:8080/cxf-test-service-0.1/cxf-test/R&uuml;diger/R&uuml%3Bdiger}}
will result in {{anAttribute=R&uuml, anotherAttribute=R&amp;uuml;diger}} to be returned.
