Have servlet that parses a url feed which takes parameters in the form of:
http://theirsite/xfeeds/feed1?q=99&p=2345
Basically, my parser will get the contents by creating a URL object and reading the output lines.

i've tried the form http://mysite/parser/myparser1?url=http://xfeeds/feed1?q=99&p=2345,
but this one chops off the url parameter after q=99, after hitting the "&".
i've tried http://mysite/parser/myparser1?url='http://xfeeds/feed1?q=99&p=2345',
but this one treats the first apostrophe as part of the url parameter and my URL blows up.

anybody tried this? any suggestions?

Values should always be URL-encoded, especially other URLs.

Axel,
Bear was giving you the answer. You need to encode the "?" and "&" in the url parameter so they don't get treated as separate parameters.

Let's also keep in mind the rule of this forum is to be nice. Saying someone's comment is useless isn't nice. And Bear is one of the moderators of this forum - a moderator isn't likely to give useless comments.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
