MockServerHandler creates a request with path = uri #60

Hi James,

there is a bug in org.mockserver.mappers.NettyToMockServerRequestMapper. We use mockserver-netty 3.4

Before handling a request with uri = "http://localhost:8080/some-path" the MockServerHandler creates a NettyHttpRequest with this uri. Then the NettyToMockServerRequestMapper sets the path using NettyHttpRequest.getPath(). But this returns the uri:

"getPath() - Method in class org.jboss.netty.handler.codec.http.QueryStringDecoder
Returns the decoded path string of the URI. "

At the end you have a request with uri = "http://localhost:8080http://localhost:8080/some-path" and path = "http://localhost:8080/some-path". Therefore, the request mapping fails.

Thanks sounds like a bug. Do you have some example code that causes the bug. That would really help me to fix it as I can add that as a test as it sounds like if this is failing there is also a missing test.

If you could send me the example failing scenario I should be able to fix this in this tomorrow.


we use the org.mockserver.integration.ClientAndServer within a web test with selenium-webdriver. I suppose you don't need our complete web test. :-)
Testing the constructor of org.mockserver.model.NettyHttpRequest should be enough.

But I think the actual error is that org.jboss.netty.handler.codec.http.QueryStringDecoder doesn't return the correct path.

Hi James,
that the url of HttpRequest looks like "http://localhost:8080http://localhost:8080/some-path" is caused by NettyToMockServerRequestMapper.setUrl. You set url = host+port+uri. In our case uri = host+port+path and, therefore, we get host+port twice.

Here is an minimized example of a Selenium-Webdriver test to reproduce both bugs.

public class TestExample {
private static ClientAndServer MOCK_SERVER;
private static WebDriver WEB_DRIVER;
private static final String HOST = "localhost";
private static final int PORT = 12345;

public static void startProxy() {
    MOCK_SERVER = ClientAndServer.startClientAndServer(PORT);

public static void stopProxy() {

public static void initWebDriver() {
    DesiredCapabilities capabilities = DesiredCapabilities.firefox();
    final Proxy proxy = new Proxy();
    proxy.setHttpProxy(String.format("%s:%s", new Object[]{HOST, PORT}));
    capabilities.setCapability(CapabilityType.PROXY, proxy);
    WEB_DRIVER = new FirefoxDriver(capabilities);

public void someTest() {
                 .withBody("<html><body>some content</body></html>"));
         Matchers.containsString("some content"));

Sorry for the delay but I've been flat out with two major initial releases of two new products.

The issue was caused by the fact that this netty method can return either a path or a full URL. I have added logic to handle both cases and covered everything with tests. Please retest it and let me know.

Closing as bug now fixed


I have retested it ... it works ... thank you
