Subject Re: Multiple leading slash characters in URI
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2014 21:46:54 GMT

Here is a simple code sniplet to reproduce the issue.

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        DefaultHttpClient httpclient = new DefaultHttpClient();
        HttpGet httpGet = new HttpGet("http://www.google.com///imghp");

        HttpResponse response1 = httpclient.execute(httpGet);

        try {
            HttpEntity entity1 = response1.getEntity();
            // do something useful with the response body
            // and ensure it is fully consumed
        } finally {


The httpclient library will only send out '/imghp' in the HTTP Request. The
additional leading slash characters are omitted. Anyway to configure
DefaultHttpClient to preserve the additional leading slash characters?

Thanks in advance,
