Hi All,

    I am passing querys as a  parameter in the url. But when I am getting that query back in another java class, I am having some problems like + is replaced with space and % is replaced with some special character etc. So my question is how should I get the query as it is without ant thing changed.

Thanks

Either use URLEncoder or URLDecoder

Hi CEHZ,

     You mean I can use URLEncode.encode before sending it as an url parameter or after getting the parameter i have to use URLDecoder.decode. Is it right? What are the encodings or decodings I can use.

The method has encode(String parameter, String encodingUsed)

So what should I use for second parameter.

Thanks

That's right. I would use "UTF-8" for the second parameter to the method
