Do you want to pass a URI as the value of a query parameter?

For example:


You can do:

   public XXX get(@QueryParam("uri") URI uri) { ... }

because URI contains a constructor that has a single string parameter.

Note that you need to make sure the client constructors the URI with
the embedded URI correctly such that the embedded URI is correctly
encoded, for example if the embedded URI has query parameters the
approach characters need to be percent encoded.
