Subject [jira] Created: (HTTPCLIENT-930) Unencoded redirect URI causes exception when following redirects
Date Fri, 02 Apr 2010 14:24:27 GMT
Unencoded redirect URI causes exception when following redirects
----------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-930
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-930
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HttpClient
    Affects Versions: 4.0.1
            Reporter: Ryan Stewart


When HttpClient is set to follow redirects, the DefaultRedirectHandler gets the redirect location
from the appropriate request header and attempts to create a new java.net.URI from it. If
the location contains an invalid URI character, creating the URI fails. For example, if the
redirect location were "/foo?bar=<baz/>", it would fail because the '<' and '>'
are not legal in a URI.

I'm not sure if this should actually be considered a bug in HttpClient, since the website
in question should probably be responsible for encoding the URI appropriately; however, browsers
handle the situation gracefully, and it would be nice if this excellent library would do so
as well.
