Probably a bit too late but this worked for me:

tmpUsername = URLDecoder.decode(new String(paramsMap.get(URL_PARAM.USER_NAME).getBytes("iso-8859-1"),"UTF-8"), "UTF-8");
tmpPassword = URLDecoder.decode(new String(paramsMap.get(URL_PARAM.PASSWORD).getBytes("iso-8859-1"),"UTF-8"), "UTF-8");

However, to accept unecoded URIs is inherently dangerous. When you get a city with a "space" in the name (like "Bad Hersfeld" or similar) you will get a Vaadin 500 - com.vaadin.server.ServiceException: java.lang.RuntimeException: Invalid location URI received from client.

So best way would be to have the caller encode the URI correctly...

Hope that helps, Frank
