Problem Description:

serializeJSON() is converting ints to floats when the number is calculated using the functions: val(), int() or ceiling(). I always assumed val() returned an int, but int() and ceiling() are supposed to return ints.

Steps to Reproduce:

Run the following code:

<cfset r = {
    "x": 0,
    "y": 1


<cfset r.x = int(Val("1"))>

<cfset r.y = ceiling(100/10)>


Actual Result:



Expected Result:

Here's a workaround: <cfset r.x = JavaCast("int", Val("1"))> <cfset r.y = JavaCast("int", ceiling(100/10))>

Even simple addition causes the number to be output as a float. For example, r["z"] = 1 + 2 will output a value of 3.0

With the fix it works as expected.
