hi, this must be simple but it is killing me....
i need to make tomcat parse the following url
http://ctkdevas1.explab.mobi:8080/ctk/test.jsp?q=hello&r=goodbye
try the link - it returns "r=null"
when i send in the following link -
http://ctkdevas1.explab.mobi:8080/ctk/test.jsp?q=hello&r=goodbye
it returns "r=goodbye"
i need to use UrlEncoding Why is this not working
The test.jsp is as below

please note - the URL's look the same but the one that does not work uses the urlEncoding for & e.g.

please try for yourselves

When you click on them in here, they don't just look the same.
They are the same.

UBB actually creates a link with the parsed version.


You shouldn't URL encode the whole querystring.
You should URL encode the parts of the querystring and then paste them together with the control characters (& and ?) as your separators.

If you url encode the whole string, the encoder will escape the control character which stops them from being control characters.
