Re: [Jersey] Issues with encoding semicolons in matrix parameters

For reference I will answer my own question in case someone encounters the
same problem ;-)

The problem is that the rewrite engine should not encode semicolons since
they have special meanings in URLs (matrix parameter separators) and the
solution is to disable the URL encoding in the rewrite rule using 'NE' - no
