Hi, I have a server/client related question.
I'm using a mobile client to update some records on the app using xml.
Now, when using the browser interface we can use forms and the content
is: Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded, the server side
decodes that automatically.
With the client side I use Content-Type= [text/xml]. However I was just
sending the xml data without escaping characters like &. The result was
that cgi was failing.
To correct that problem I use
is Symbian and escapes the reserved characters in a URL
;/?:@&=+$!\'()~. It is applied to the entire xml
Then from the server side I do:
string = CGI::unescape(params[:message][:subject])
My questions are is:
1- Is this the right approach?
2- Is there a way to do the same without having to decode "manually" at
