> I suspect there is a defect in the {{org.apache.wink.server.internal.registry.ServerInjectableFactory$FormParamBinding.getValue()}} method [\[1\]|http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/wink/tags/wink-1.4.0/wink-server/src/main/java/org/apache/wink/server/internal/registry/ServerInjectableFactory.java?revision=1523533&view=markup#l342] that causes {{@FormParam}}-annotated parameters to be URL decoded twice under certain conditions.  This causes a problem when the unencoded parameter value contains a percent sign ({{%}}).  In that case, the second URL decode incorrectly transforms sequences of {{%<char><char>}} into a single character resulting in an incorrect parameter value on the service side.
> The issue is manifested when the path through {{FormParamBinding.getValue()}} goes through the following code:
> {code:java}
>                     // see E011 at
>                     // http://jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/maintenance/jsr311/311ChangeLog.html
>                     // Perhaps the message body was already consumed by a
>                     // servlet filter. Let's try the servlet request parameters
>                     // instead.
>                     Map map =
>                         RuntimeContextTLS.getRuntimeContext()
>                             .getAttribute(HttpServletRequest.class).getParameterMap();
> {code}
> The {{javax.servlet.ServletRequest.getParameterMap()}} method will URL decode the parameter value if the content type is {{application/x-www-form-urlencoded}} (this is not specified in the Javadocs, but I confirmed that Jetty implements this behavior).  Then, regardless of how the parameter value was retrieved, the following code is executed later in the method:
> {code:java}
>             // decode all values
>             decodeValues(values);
> {code}
> The {{decodeValues()}} method also URL decodes the parameter value.
> Thus, the parameter value is URL decoded twice whenever Wink is forced to retrieve the parameter value from the request object instead of reading the request body directly.
> A naive fix for the issue would be to bypass {{decodeValues()}} if the parameter value is obtained from the request object.
> A confirmed workaround for the issue requires replacing the {{@FormParam}}-annotated parameter(s) of the service method with a {{@Context}}-annotated parameter referencing the {{HttpServletRequest}} and directly retrieving the form parameters from the request object.  A possible, but unconfirmed, workaround may be to annotate the service method with {{@Encoded}} to suppress one of the URL decodes [\[2\]|http://stackoverflow.com/a/11949673/3900879].
