    Description



      Name: rmT116609 Date: 08/14/2003


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      A MalformedURLException will be thrown not only when, as documented, any URL Constructor is called with a String holding no or an unknown protocol. It is also thrown, when that String specifies a port address that can not be converted to a positive int. The latter condition is not documented.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Throws:
      MalformedURLException - if no protocol is specified, or an unknown protocol is found, or if a port address is specified, that can not be converted to a positive int.
      ACTUAL -
      Throws:
      MalformedURLException - if no protocol is specified, or an unknown protocol is found.
