Does anyone know where I might find a class that will convert a normal string into one that is formated for a url? What I mean is if I pass it a string:

This is a string

I want it to return:

This+is+a+string

so that I can append this to a url in an anchor tag which is generated through a servlet, bean, jsp or whatever.

Thanks
-A
