suggestion - have URLEncoding available

i’m often strugling with web services due to URL encoding issues.

Java is very strict in these things:



it is quite funny, because in the project, i basically parse weblogs and reuse the url’s, so they should be valid from an HTTP perspective (in CURL there is no issue)

so two suggestions would make our lives really wonderfull

  1. make the REST nodes less strict
  2. have a node to URLEncode the strings

great work guys!



I agree it would be a nice feature. In the mean time, I wrote a simple java snippet that will encode a string before use in a GET request. It works fast and accurately. (6.3 KB)
