public static List<NameValuePair> parse (URI uri, String encoding)

Added in API level 1

Returns a list of NameValuePairs as built from the URI's query portion. For example, a URI of http://example.org/path/to/file?a=1&b=2&c=3 would return a list of three NameValuePairs, one for a=1, one for b=2, and one for c=3.

This is typically useful while parsing an HTTP PUT.

Parameters
uri uri to parse
encoding encoding to use while parsing the query

public static List<NameValuePair> parse (HttpEntity entity)

Added in API level 1

Returns a list of NameValuePairs as parsed from an HttpEntity. The encoding is taken from the entity's Content-Encoding header.

This is typically used while parsing an HTTP POST.

Parameters
entity The entity to parse
Throws
IOException If there was an exception getting the entity's data.

public static void parse (List<NameValuePair> parameters, Scanner scanner, String encoding)

Added in API level 1

Parameters
parameters List to add parameters to.
scanner Input that contains the parameters to parse.
encoding Encoding to use when decoding the parameters.
