missing something about REST XML API



Am trying to use REST XML reporting combined with Jersey to develop a Java based reporting app.

Have validated basic REST XML interface and access.

Can't seem to resolve a simple encoding issue.

As an example, created a dashboard called RESTXMLPP that only contained the PP dashlet. Confirmed that it worked by calling in a web browser and through a Jersey Java program:

Now want to be able to customize the timeframe.

Typing this in the browser works:

In the Java program, Jersey encodes the special characters and I end up with this:

When submitted via Jersey, the server ignores the filter and I still get the last 30 minutes. What am I missing?

Take a look at this thread from stackoverflow.

Hope this helps,
