You're doing an HTTP request that ultimately is supposed to translate
into a method call. The problem appears to be somewhere in between
those; what system are you using to handle HTTP (web) requests, and
how does it translate a URL into a method call?

As a side point, if it takes a piece of the URL and looks it up,
unchecked, as a member name, this is a rather dodgy practice. I hope
you have a whitelist of legal method names.
