Arien Kock opened SPR-12880 and commented

While testing I discovered that (per the spec) HttpServletRequest.getQueryString() should not be decoded. In fact, it is not when the web application is deployed to Jetty.

Excerpt from the Javadoc for HttpServletRequest.getQueryString():

Returns: a String containing the query string or null if the URL contains no query string. The value is not decoded by the container.

However, MockHttpServletRequestBuilder decodes the queryString when building. Thus, I believe this is a defect in MockHttpServletRequestBuilder.

Affects: 4.1.6
