Sorry, here are the details.

I am using Firefox 46.0.1, DeepaMehta 4.8.1-SNAPSHOT (latest on 'master') on ubuntu. I have the feeling that this might be deepamehta unspecific cause i experienced the same behaviour recently in another webapp (with the exact same browser/os setup).

The & in the request is not properly URL-encoded.
This is a bug in the Webclient's RestClient?.
Will be fixed in DM 4.8.1
Thank you for reporting!

Webclient: fix URL-encoding (#984).

The query parameters as send by the Webclient's RESTClient are properly URL-encoded.

As a consequence creating topicmaps whose name contains a & is now possible.

Thanks to Malte for reporting!

See #984.

In 6660e3ccb57d880cf19a1c12bad9589323addc8d/deepamehta:

Webclient: revise RequestParameter? API (#984).


RESTClient utilities:

  • createRequestParameter() is renamed to queryParams()
  • to_query_string() must not be called anymore

Old code:

dm4c.restc.my_request = function() {
    var params = this.createRequestParameter({name: value, name: value})
    this.request("GET", "/my/resource" + params.to_query_string())

New code:

dm4c.restc.my_request = function() {
    var params = this.queryParams({name: value, name: value})
    this.request("GET", "/my/resource" + params)

Note: passing an object as param value is not supported anymore, just string, number, boolean.

See #984.
