Hi there,

I use a jersey webservice and I want to give the webservice method a jsonstring.

this is the method:

public String search(@QueryParam("token") String token,
        @QueryParam("searchString") String searchParams)

so I define my searchString of the Type JSONObject in the client and call the webservice method:
HttpGet requesttest = new HttpGet(""+cursor.getString(0)+"&searchString="+searchString);
but trying this throws the exception that there is a illegal character in the query. I´m sure it is because of :

If I change to post it looks like this:
HttpPost requestPost = new HttpGet("http:/");
List<NameValuePair> params = new ArrayList<NameValuePair>();
params.add(new BasicNameValuePair("token", cursor.getString(0)));

but I don´t know how to use the searchstring in the search method of the webservie now.

does anybody know how to solve the problem?

best wishes
