This is an easy error to get when you aren’t paying attention. What happened is you included com.google.gwt.http.client.URL on the server-side to try and decode an encoded URL. What you want to use is java.net.URLDecoder. Also related, the string is by default encoded UTF-8, so decode like this: String s = URLDecoder.decode(string, “UTF-8″);

Maybe someone else will find this instead of having to search for it.

No. At least not at the time of this post. I think there are a few projects around on Sourceforge or Google Code. I’d suggest using DateTimeFormat in the com.google.gwt.i18n.client package.

It took me a little Googling to figure this out, so maybe this post will help someone in the future.
