The result is that the HttpUrlConnection returns a valid readable

Hi Stefan and Thomas,

Can you follow the instructions in
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=262831#c24 and check
whether this (still) works? With this ECF should use the
HttpUrlConnection. Maybe this works.
This should work as a work around...given that HttpUrlConnection
doesn't do the same thing (but it's possible it will...so please
report results either way).
I'm not sure either. The header field contains a URL that has a space in
it. Perhaps the server is doing something wrong. My problem is that I
have a customer that wants to replace his old way of aggregating things
using the old Update Manager with our new P2 based aggregator.
Apparently the old Update Manager doesn't run into this issue so his
experience is that by switching to P2, things stop working.

The problem occurs when trying to read the update site found at
http://eclipse-cs.sourceforge.net/update/site.xml. This is an old
style update site. Eventually, the UpdateSite.parseFeature attempts
to download a feature jar. The server returns a redirect URL and
that URL, when normalized, contains a space.
Shouldn't the (normalized) redirect URL not contain a space? I'm not
sure what the spec says about client handling of redirect URLs, but
I'll take a look. But in any case (whether httpclient is spec-correct
or not), we'll see what we can do to fix/workaround.
Not sure how to accomplish #2. Do you mean patch the ECF httpclient
The HttpMethodDirector.processRedirectResponse then makes an attempt
to create an URI directly from that response without converting the
space to a %20. The result is the exception below.
Is there any way to get around this problem?
I can think of two ways for us to workaround/handle:
1) Modify/patch httpclient (it might be useful to see if this has
already been done to httpclient, but given that the 3.x stream isn't
being work on any more I sort of doubt it).
2) handle httpclient redirect responses 'manually' within the
httpclient provider and do the normalization (%20 insertion) as a
