Convert a flat JSON object to x-www-form-urlencoded

As captioned:


def jsonData = '''
	"city":"New York"	
def slurper = new groovy.json.JsonSlurper().parseText(jsonData)
def str = new StringBuilder()
def iter = slurper.keySet().iterator()
	def key =
	def value = slurper.get(key).toString().trim().replaceAll(" ","20%")
} str[0..str.size()-2]

    Great solution, aaronpliu!


    For convenience, let me quote the initial task for the community members:


    "Convert a flat JSON object to x-www-form-urlencoded

    Create a Groovy script, which transforms a non-nested JSON object to the x-www-form-urlencoded format before sending it in the request body.

    Example: converting this object

      "name": "John",
      "age": 30,
      "city": "New York"

    should result in the name=John&age=30&city=New%20York string."
