Especially '#' in a path component of a FileObject
must be escaped and cannot be left as is in an
nbfs: URL. Looks like '#' in file system names are
escaped but not paths within a file system - with
core/localfs this will become more of a problem I
'?' is also a special character for URLs.
Specifically, got on console:
has a fragment ID.
while doing a text search /space/src, which includes the subdir ant/
containing Apache Ant sources.
Do you think, that we need to keep strange escaping mechanism with 'Q'
prefix ? I would like to replace it with %xy pattern which everybody
is familier with. I expect, that backward compatibility (decode) must
be kept, but encoding can be completely replaced.
One idea for how to make such a change compatible: move the name of
the file system into the 'host' part of the URL. That should be enough
to unambiguously distinguish old nbfs: URLs from the new. E.g.
Another possibility is to simply use a different URL protocol, e.g.
Anyway getting rid of the weird Q-escapes would be very nice.

I would be valuable to add also some test cases. I'd bet you had some
anyway to test the behaviour, so just turn them into NbTestCase please.

A test is there and seems to call decode & encode URL methods.
Is <nbfs://%2Fhome%2Fpk97937%2Fbugs/is34/x317/emptyDTD.dtd> valid URL?
Parser denies to accept it. Original nbfs coding scheme used Q escaping.
I cannot render the specification
<http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2396.txt>. So I tried Mozilla and it also
denies URLs that contain escaping in host name. Escaping is OK in path.
Please resolve soon as issue 34317 is Q-build blocker.
Appendix A reads:
hostname = *( domainlabel "." ) toplabel [ "." ]
domainlabel = alphanum | alphanum *( alphanum | "-" ) alphanum
toplabel = alpha | alpha *( alphanum | "-" ) alphanum
So really escaped is not allowed in host name.
Could somebody please do something about it ? This bug prevents issue
#34317 to be fixed and thus takes over its Q-build showstopper
attribute ! Increasing prirority ...
Fixed in trunk:
new revision: 1.2; previous revision: 1.1
and also in QBE200306250100:
new revision: 188.8.131.52; previous revision: 1.1
I'm verifying it because fix is solving performance problem
mentioned in the issue #34456
Maybe that issue is duplicate of this one...
Verified, the fix is solving problem mentioned in the issue #34317.
