    iOS client API encoding issue

    Hi,

    Our iOS application using iOS LS library has issue when try to authenticate against our LS server. After investigation, we found that the token, assigned to LS_user parameter, being sent to LS server is different from the one set by the app thru the iOS client API. Any "+" character in the token string is replaced by a space character which make the token become invalid. We have similar authentication logic working fine with other LS client libraries, like Silverlight and .net window.
    Is it a bug in iOS client? How I can get around it?

    Thanks
    Joseph

    Hello Joseph,

    what you notice is actually a bug, due to slight incompatibilities on how URLs are encoded and decoded by iOS and Java. Unfortunately, the specifications for URL encoding leave room for interpretation and, as frequently happens, different systems interpret it in different ways. Thanks for reporting, it will be surely solved in an upcoming release.

    In the meanwhile, a simple workaround would be to pre-escape the "+" sign with some character combination, and then unescape it in the metadata adapter (notifyUser and notifyNewSession methods).
    Hope this helps. Best regards,

    Gianluca

    This has not been planned yet, but the fix on the iOS library is now available.
