POST Data is different when run from TestClient and actually received

In my POST data I have a string that contains a + as a space. (i.e. key=Value+1)

In the test framework, request.POSTkey? sees this as 'Value+1', but when run in production request.POSTkey? returns 'Value 1'.

So I fixed it in my production environment, but now it causes my tests to fail.

I am unable to duplicate the behavior you're describing.

I think this stems from the fact that different clients are going to interpret + in the string differently - your browser may be converting that a space, for example. Can you doublecheck (e.g. with firebug, look at the post request) to make sure that isn't the effect you're seeing? If you need a specific style of escaping for your application, you may need to escape the string yourself. Also beware of your production server changing these values before they get to your application.

I'm closing this as invalid because I'm pretty sure this is the problem you're seeing, but please re-open it if that isn't the case. When you do, please provide a bit more detailed code to help duplicate the problem you're having, including detailed information about your production setup, and what makes it different from the dev server (which I assume does not have this problem, since you didn't mention it).
