Hello Experts,

I need to encode  URL :  url="SummaryPage.do?Id=-1&qType=quote";   in JAVA.

Currently showing like:

http://localhost:****/SummaryPage.do?Id=-1&qType=quote

The result should be like:

http://localhost:****/SummaryPage.do?quote


And also how to decode it.

You really need to look into what URL encoding means. Your two examples do not relate to each other, and at a quick glance, the first one doesn't need encoding

My java code is something like below:

 url="SummaryPage.do?Id=-1&qType=quote";


Now when I open the main URL it will be like :

http://localhost:<<port>>

When I click on summary page button it redirect me to another page and the URL looks like :

http://localhost:<<port>>/SummaryPage.do?Id=-1&qType=quote


Where I want to encode the below:

http://localhost:****/SummaryPage.do?quote

So that I dont have to show the user the ID number and the type of request type.


Can any give me the example on my requirement.

You use the form with hidden elements and in its action you specify method=POST
and for hidden element you specify their names Id and qType and their
values -1 and quote respectively and when you submit such form and
say in the servlet specified in the action method you'll retrieve
your values the same way as you would retrieve them from the
GET method if they were present in the address line

A combination of http:#36531541 and http:#36531612 should do it for you. Nothing to do with encoding btw - you mean you want to hide the parameters
