Decode Web Text

This activity provides methods for decoding URLs when processing Web requests.

Supported Encoders:

Encoder Description
Url Decoder Converts a string that has been encoded for transmission in a URL into a decoded string. If characters such as blanks and punctuation are passed in an HTTP stream, they might be misinterpreted at the receiving end. URL encoding converts characters that are not allowed in a URL into character-entity equivalents; URL decoding reverses the encoding. For example, when embedded in a block of text to be transmitted in a URL, the characters < and > are encoded as %3c and %3e.
Html Decoder Converts a string that has been HTML-encoded for HTTP transmission into a decoded string. If characters such as blanks and punctuation are passed in an HTTP stream, they might be misinterpreted at the receiving end. HTML encoding converts characters that are not allowed in HTML into character-entity equivalents; HTML decoding reverses the encoding. For example, when embedded in a block of text, the characters < and > are encoded as < and > for HTTP transmission.
