Issue in Calling webservice with special character in hostname using HTTP GET method,

When i execute it using java code i am getting 401 unauthorized. But the same is working successfully in postman

Below is the code

String appKey = "b980cf5d9fcce29da2c51afe73334349696cb7c031434348e";
String column = URLEncoder.encode(":", "UTF-8");
String atsymbol =  URLEncoder.encode("@", "UTF-8");

String url = "https://"+appKey+column+"X"+atsymbol+"app.listen360.com/organizations/628956/reviews.xml";
GetMethod httpget = new GetMethod(url);
List<NameValuePair> nvps = new ArrayList<NameValuePair>();
nvps.add(new NameValuePair("per_page", "20"));
nvps.add(new NameValuePair("order", "asc"));
httpget.setQueryString(nvps.toArray(new NameValuePair[nvps.size()]));

HttpClient httpclient = new HttpClient();
try {
httpclient.executeMethod(httpget);
if (httpget.getStatusLine().getStatusCode() == 200) {
String responseJson = httpget.getResponseBodyAsString();
System.out.println(responseJson);


}
} catch (IOException e) {
//logError(e);
}

Two things to try :

Remove that URL encoding - it does not do anything for the characters you're using it for.

Don't ignore the exception - log the full stacktrace to where you will see it.

The user info should contain a literal : and @, not UTF encoded ones. So your URL should simply be https://b980cf5d9fcce29da2c51afe73334349696cb7c031434348e:X@app.listen360.com/organizations/628956/reviews.xml, not the encoded https://b980cf5d9fcce29da2c51afe73334349696cb7c031434348e%3AX%40app.listen360.com/organizations/628956/reviews.xml.

So Tim, it actually does encode the : and @ (to %3A and %40 respectively); the problem is that it shouldn't in this case.

That would be the correct value for the host. The user info is not part of the host itself, instead it will be used as part of authentication (probably the Authorization header).
