' UrlEncodeMap(input As Map) As String
' Converts a Map's keys/values to a URL encoded parameter string
' Following library is used
' B4J - jStringUtils
' B4A - StringUtils
' B4i - iStringUtils
Sub UrlEncodeMap(input As Map) As String
    Dim sb As StringBuilder
    Dim su As StringUtils
    sb.Initialize
    Dim first As Boolean = True
    For Each key In input.Keys
        If Not(first) Then
            sb.Append("&")
        Else
            first = False
        End If
        sb.Append($"${su.EncodeUrl(key, "UTF8")}=${su.EncodeUrl(input.Get(key), "UTF8")}"$)
    Next
    Return sb.ToString
End Sub
Example:
B4X:
    Dim table As String = "&some table+Ihavehere"
    Dim username As String = "\my /name&is_John"
    Dim nullString As String = Null
    Dim aMap As Map = CreateMap("table" : table, "username" : username, "null String" : nullString)
    Log(UrlEncodeMap(aMap))
Output:
table=%26some+table%2BIhavehere&username=%5Cmy+%2Fname%26is_John&null+String=null
