Hi ranchers!
I am facing a problem with response.sendRedirect(response.encodeRedirectURL()) method .I have a form which takes a comment field in a textarea.I submit the form to a jsp page say test1.jsp which takes the value of the comment as request.getParameter.Then i need to pass this value to an intermediate page say test3.jsp using response.sendRedirect(newUrl)>This newUrl contains the comment parameter in the query string as in test3.jsp?sComment="+sComment .If this comment contains any special characters such as % ,? then these values are not passed to test3.jsp.
The flow is like this :
(submit) redirect redirect(QueryString)
form.jsp --> test1.jsp -->test2.jsp --->
Now why is this happening?Can anyone suggest anything?

Normally, see ur browser settings, some browser uses %20 or % for spaces. So you would get space instead of %.
Thanks & Regards
