Re: replace white space in URL

If you need to replace spaces and special characters in forms, take a look at net.rim.blackberry.api.browser.URLEncodedPostData class.

Re: replace white space in URL

Use this method to replace white spaces.

    public static String replaceAll(String source, String pattern,String replacement)
        if(source == null) return "";

        StringBuffer    buffer = new StringBuffer();
        int             idx = -1;
        int             patIdx = 0;

        while ((idx = source.indexOf(pattern, patIdx)) != -1)
            buffer.append(source.substring(patIdx, idx));
            patIdx = idx + pattern.length();


        return buffer.toString();
