Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3638) should allow URL encoding with custom encoding charset other than the default
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2007 20:21:43 GMT

Jay D. McHugh commented on GERONIMO-3638:
-----------------------------------------

Content can be in any character set, but I am pretty sure that you are only allowed to use
a portion of the 8859 character set in URLs.

<snippet from RFC1738>
Thus, only alphanumerics, the special characters "$-_.+!*'(),", and reserved characters used
for their reserved  purposes may be used unencoded within a URL.
</snippet>

Since this is an HTTP client, shouldn't it be limited to the characters allowed by the URL
spec?

> Currently AsyncHttpClient uses Chartset.defaultCharset() when it encodes the query string.
 However, applications may want to use a different encoding than the machine default charset;
e.g. UTF-8.  It needs to provide a way to specify an encoding that AHC should use to encode
the query string.
