Question - build URL using escape characters

I am using a product called displaytag to create tables in my jsp. It is working fine but now I have to create a link in one of the columns that display a requisition number.

My problem is that I am having syntax problems trying to use escape characters to properly create my URL for this link.

Here is what I have in my java code:



What I get when I hover over the link in my JSP is:

http://thr00188b1bb85c:8080/reqs

This is half right but I do can't seem to get the rest of it.

If anyone has any experience with escape characters and can tell me what I'm doing wrong it would be greatly appreciated.

Regards.

I suspect you're looking for the HTML & JavaScript forum.

What's that \" doing after regs? That closes the href attribute!

It should probably be something like this:

The entire URL must be part of the href, so you can't put the closing quote until after entity.
