I am writing a java webserver that can use bitcoin as a payment method. Thanks to the helpful advice in this question, I am able to generate payment addresses for various signed up vendors. I am now taking that address and creating a Payment Request using the bitcoinJ library. I would like, however, to have this request as a meaningful URL still, so the web browser or client making the payment can do something with it. That is to say, I create the payment request on the server and return it to the client. The client can then put that request in their wallet of choice and make a payment.
Is the payment request able to work that way? I saw this post on stackoverflow that indicates that it can, however I haven't been able to see anything within the API I am using that can do that. Is that a limitation of the specification, the library I'm using, or is it possible to do?
