Description

Check for potential usage of non-ASCII characters in webservice URL requests, such as a Chinese group name appearing in a webservice URL request.

For example: If a webservice URL for obtaining user information was of the form, http://host/users/馬友友 then the GET request through apache's utils would throw an exception. Thus, we need to encode such non-ASCII characters to UTF8 first with URLUTF8Encoder#encode.
