Subject URL escaping
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2004 15:53:03 GMT
Hi All,
 
Here is a URL that throws an exception if passed to GetMethod as is:
 
throws something like invalid argument or uri. 
It appears to be the unescaped characters in /tr/cl/1,,TRAVELOCITY|987,00.html
 
The problem is if the whole string is escaped then these escaped characters are double encoded:
%3fService%3d
to %325fService%253d
which causes a server error 500.

Is there a simple way to send any request without complaining about the URI?
If this URL is pasted into IE it works.
 
Currently doing this:
 
        URI parsedURI = null;
        // if at first you don't succeed.
        try {
            try { // again.
                parsedURI = new URI(url.toCharArray()); // This throws on the URL above
 
            } catch (URIException e) {
                parsedURI = new URI(url, I18N.getDefaultEncoding());  // This double encodes
the URL above.
            }
} catch (URIException e) {
}
 
Thanks for your time and help,
Steve
