Issue #7973 has been updated by danblack (Daniel Black).


a combined uri.path and uri.query (if exists) is needed

Net::HTTP::Get.new uri.path + '?' + uri.query

I probably should also request that URI has a method to returns path + query as it would make a lot of sense in these examples.

http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.0/libdoc/net/http/rdoc/Net/HTTP.html documents a URI object being passed to Net::HTTP::Get.new and Net::HTTP::Post.new a few times.

passing a URI to  Net::HTTP::Post.new or  Net::HTTP::Get.new throws a NoMethodError as the URI doesn't have an empty method.

also fails in ruby 1.8.7 (2010-01-10 patchlevel 249) [x86_64-linux]
