Subject [jira] Updated: (CODEC-95) Base64: optionally allow strict parsing of base64 strings
Date Fri, 04 Dec 2009 17:40:20 GMT


Adam Rabung updated CODEC-95:


Not sure how much this will really help, as I don't know much about the base 64 spec or Apache
coding guidelines (adding checked exceptions to existing methods?), but it's a start.

> Currently, Codec skips base64 characters that are outside of the encode table.  I realize
this is perfectly to spec, but I wonder if other users might appreciate a "strict" mode that
throws an exception when one of these illegal characters are encountered.  For example, I
would love an exception to be thrown here:
> new Base64().decode("!@#$ iHaveIllegalCharsAtBeginningAndEnd %^&"));
