Created: 01/17/2014

Components: AJAX, Plumbing

Versions: 10.0

Failure Type: Data Corruption

Found In Build/Fixed In Build: Final / CF10_Update14

Priority/Frequency: Critical / Some users will encounter

Locale/System: English / Windows 7 SP1 64-bit

Vote Count: 0

Problem Description:
I think it's any string that conforms to the following pattern: ([0-9]+D ) << Notice the space at the end.

Steps to Reproduce:
	<p>#SerializeJSON({s:"1A "})#</p>
	<p>#SerializeJSON({s:"12D "})#</p>
	<p>#SerializeJSON({s:"34D "})#</p>
	<cfset str = "56D " />

Actual Result:
{"S":"1A "} // Fine
{"S":"1D"}  // Fine
{"S":12D }  // Wrong (will cause JS error)
{"S":34D }  // Wrong (will cause JS error)
{"S":56D }  // Wrong (will cause JS error)

Expected Result:
{"S":"1A "}
{"S":"12D "}
{"S":"34D "}
{"S":"56D "}

Any Workarounds:
Trim the values. 
However, some may actually want the full string. And having something that innocent create invalid JSON is stupid.

It seems to be related to how floats and doubles are defined as literals in Java: -- Adam

Nimit, does this mean it will be in the next updater to CF 10? Or does it mean it's fixed in CF 11?
