Regarding QueryString in JSP

Hi,
In my application, im sending emails and in that im giving link to one of my webpage.
Along with the link im passing one name as a query string.
Using JavaMailAPI im setting the mail content like this

MimeBodyPart mbp1 = new MimeBodyPart();
mbp1.setText(body);
mbp1.setContent("center<a href=http://localhost:8084/NewIfotoFx/sharelogin.jsp?username="+username+"&album="+album+"><img src=http://localhost:8084/NewIfotoFx/hii.gif width=145 height=27 border=0 /></a></center>","text/html");

The problem arises if the username or albumname contains any spaces
then only one half of the values is getting passed with the query.
For ex:
albumname = My Photos
then the string passed along with the query is only My
This is happening only when sending along with the email msg.

Can anyone tell me solution for this?
thanx a lot

As with any other usage, query string parameters need to be properly encoded.

Check out java.net.URLEncoder.
