When retrieving a folder that contains '+' sign in its name (e.g: abc+d) from Artifactory it retrieves '404' error.

The '+' sign is translated into white space instead and therefore causes a 404 error when trying to download an entire folder.

The issue was reproduced by the following:


2016-11-23 10:13:45,660 [http-nio-8081-exec-9] [ERROR] (o.a.d.FolderDownloadServiceImpl:199) - Path 'gen-local/abc d' does not exist, aborting folder download

In the request.log:


When trying to retrieve the same folder through the REST, it works fine with no errors:
