I'm using HttpServletRequest.getRequestURI(), because I need this simple form (from javadoc):

First line of HTTP request Returned Value
POST /some/path.html HTTP/1.1/some/path.html
GET http://foo.bar/a.html HTTP/1.0 /a.html
HEAD /xyz?a=b HTTP/1.1/xyz

Unfortunately, "The web container does not decode this String", which leaves me with things like /foo%20bar.html when I call it.

I need a clean way to decode the URI that is returned (or to convert the returned value of getRequestURL into the 'simple' form above).

Does anyone have any ideas?

The java.net.URLDecoder and URLEncoder classes handle this.

Means you are getting "/foo%20bar.html" instead of "/a.html"??

That was a lot easier than I was finding it to be, thank you.
