Class UrlEncodedParser

public class UrlEncodedParser implements ObjectParser

Implements support for HTTP form content encoding parsing of type application/x-www-form-urlencoded as specified in the HTML 4.0 Specification.

Implementation is thread-safe.

The data is parsed using #parse(String, Object).

Sample usage:

static void setParser(HttpTransport transport) { transport.addParser(new UrlEncodedParser()); }

Methods

<T>parseAndClose(InputStream in, Charset charset, Class<T> dataClass)

public T <T>parseAndClose(InputStream in, Charset charset, Class<T> dataClass)

Parses the given input stream into a new instance of the the given data class of key/value pairs and closes the input stream.

Parameters

Returns
TypeDescription
T
Exceptions

<T>parseAndClose(Reader reader, Class<T> dataClass)

public T <T>parseAndClose(Reader reader, Class<T> dataClass)

Parses the given reader into a new instance of the the given data class of key/value pairs and closes the reader.

Parameters
NameDescription

dataClassClass<T>
Returns

parse(Reader reader, Object data)

public static void parse(Reader reader, Object data)

Parses the given URL-encoded content into the given data object of data key name/value pairs, including support for repeating data key names.

Declared fields of a "primitive" type (as defined by Data#isPrimitive(Type) are parsed using Data#parsePrimitiveValue(Type, String) where the Class parameter is the declared field class. Declared fields of type Collection are used to support repeating data key names, so each member of the collection is an additional data key value. They are parsed the same as "primitive" fields, except that the generic type parameter of the collection is used as the Class parameter.

If there is no declared field for an input parameter name, it will be ignored unless the input data parameter is a Map. If it is a map, the parameter value will be stored either as a string, or as a ArrayList<String> in the case of repeated parameters.

Parameters
NameDescription
readerReader

URL-encoded reader

dataObject

data key name/value pairs

Exceptions
TypeDescription
IOException

parse(Reader reader, Object data, boolean decodeEnabled)

public static void parse(Reader reader, Object data, boolean decodeEnabled)

Declared fields of a "primitive" type (as defined by Data#isPrimitive(Type) are parsed using Data#parsePrimitiveValue(Type, String) where the Class parameter is the declared field class. Declared fields of type Collection are used to support repeating data key names, so each member of the collection is an additional data key value.
