Http sender, url encoding...


  • Hi,

    Can anyone tell me what files are responsible for encoding the URL's sent via the http sender?

    If i create a sending string, from a data point, such as... 'abc&__value=xyz' and the sending parameter = __point

    It should send http://host?__point=abc&__value=xyz but instead it converts everything in the data point string...

    so the receiver see's http://host?__point=abc%26__value%3Dxyz.

    Now a php server i've running can cope with this, but what i'd like to do it publish to a mango http receiver.

    In this case, the http receiver doesn't decode the string, and takes it as it is and so fails.

    Is the encoding down to the dojo uri.js file?

    Or is the error in that the http receiver is not decoding the url and reading it literally?

    Thanks

    Neil

    Hey Neil,

    I don't know if you ever sorted out that issue. I would say that it is definitely an issue with the receiving party not decoding them properly. URL encoding is pretty standard actually.
