Dear Ranches,
How can tell me what the difference is between encodeURL and encodeRedirectURL? Are they both used for URL Rewriting?
Many thanks
Eunis

I think there was a previous debate on this topic, forgot what it resolved to. But anyways, yes both these methods are used to encode URL's.
encodeRedirectURL is used specifically to encode for the sendRedirect(...) method.
The difference is in deciding whether to encode the sessionID into the URL or not.

Both methods will add jsessionid to the URL where necessary, however (according to the API) the logic for working out whether it is necessary, is different for sendRedirect, hence two methods.
Any idea why the logic should be different? Tomcat's implementation appears to use the same logic for both cases.
