EnvironmentProduct: OpenEdge
Version: 11.7
OS: Windows
Question/Problem Description
Using OpenEdge 11.6.3, the following code snippet:

using OpenEdge.Net.UriEncodingTypeEnum.
message OpenEdge.Net.URI:Encode("test":U + "=":U, UriEncodingTypeEnum:Query) view-as alert-box.


Outputs the following:
test%3D

Using OpenEdge 11.7 the following code snippet:

using OpenEdge.Net.UriEncodingTypeEnum.
message OpenEdge.Net.URI:Encode("test":U + "=":U, UriEncodingTypeEnum:Query) view-as alert-box.


Outputs the following:
test=
 
Steps to Reproduce
Clarifying Information
Error Message
Defect/Enhancement Number
Cause
This is expected behavior. 

In OpenEdge 11.7 the behavior of the URI:Encode method was changed to be more in line with the RFC 3986: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#page-23.

The following are legal characters in a query string and must not be percent encoded. The equal sign is included in the sub-delims:
 
pct-encoded   = "%" HEXDIG HEXDIG
unreserved    = ALPHA / DIGIT / "-" / "." / "_" / "~"
sub-delims    = "!" / "$" / "&" / "'" / "(" / ")" / "*" / "+" / "," / ";" / "="
pchar         = unreserved / pct-encoded / sub-delims / ":" / "@"
query       = *( pchar / "/" / "?" )
 
Resolution
Workaround
To get results from OpenEdge.Net.URI:Encode, in OpenEgde 11.7 to be the same as those seen in OpenEdge 11.6.3, change the code as follows:
message
       OpenEdge.Net.URI:Encode("test=":U, UriEncodingTypeEnum:Defaultskip
       view-as alert-box
.

Change UriEncodingTypeEnum:Query to UriEncodingTypeEnum:Default.
