The syntax of
HTTP URIs is defined in RFC1738 section 3.3.
Note that the Ruby
URI library allows
HTTP URLs containing usernames and passwords. This is not legal as per the RFC, but used to be supported in Internet Explorer 5 and 6, before the MS04-004 security update. See <URL:support.microsoft.com/kb/834489>.
Creates a new
URI::HTTP object from components, with syntax checking.
The components accepted are userinfo, host, port, path, query, and fragment.
The components should be provided either as an Array, or as a Hash with keys formed by preceding the component names with a colon.
If an Array is used, the components must be passed in the order
[userinfo, host, port, path, query, fragment].
uri = URI::HTTP.build(host: 'www.example.com', path: '/foo/bar') uri = URI::HTTP.build([nil, "www.example.com", nil, "/path", "query", 'fragment'])
Currently, if passed userinfo components this method generates invalid
HTTP URIs as per RFC 1738.
# File uri/http.rb, line 59 def self.build(args) tmp = Util.make_components_hash(self, args) super(tmp) end
Returns the full path for an
HTTP request, as required by Net::HTTP::Get.
URI contains a query, the full path is URI#path + ‘?’ + URI#query. Otherwise, the path is simply URI#path.
uri = URI::HTTP.build(path: '/foo/bar', query: 'test=true') uri.request_uri # => "/foo/bar?test=true"
# File uri/http.rb, line 77 def request_uri return unless @path url = @query ? "#@path?#@query" : @path.dup url.start_with?(?/.freeze) ? url : ?/ + url end
