Running apache: httpd-2.0.46-46.3.ent
tomcat: jakarta-tomcat-4.1.30 using the mod_jk connector. Earlier yesterday we started recieving the following error. java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "888888%26order=44%26start=3%26end=3" The page started to get refered to by another website, and the link that they are using is: http://www.mysite.com/mypage.jsp?item=888888%2526order=44%2526start=3%25 26end=3 When I follow that link, it doesn't work, and it displays that it couldn't handle the input string "888888%26order=44%26start=3%26end=3" (notice that the %2526 in the referring url now is a %26) %25 = % %26 = & so it looks like the %25 is converting to the %, but then the recurring %26 is not getting converted to the &, which is causing tomcat not to be able to parse the variables. Is this an apache or tomcat misconfiguration/bug? I've been searching, but unable to find any answers. Any ideas on how to resolve this would be helpful. Sorry if this topic has been brought up before. I was unable to find any hits on google, or searching the mailing list archive. Thanks, Dave.
