Problem Description: This problem is very similar to, but happen in rest server

Steps to Reproduce:
Create a rest service
<cfcomponent restpath="Test" rest="true">
	<cffunction name="testStruct" access="remote" output="false" returntype="struct" httpmethod="get" restpath="/testStruct">
		<cfset ret = {"Text":"Yes", "Text2":"You should get Yes from Test"}>
		<cfreturn ret>

Then call the rest service, and compare to call it directly with cfc.

Actual Result:
Calling rest service will return: {"Text2":"You should get Yes from Test","Text":true}
Calling the component directly will return: {"Text2":"You should get Yes from Test","Text":"Yes"}

Expected Result:
I will expect 
{"Text2":"You should get Yes from Test","Text":"Yes"}

Any Workarounds:
By adding a leading space will turn it the " Yes", but no a good solution.

Hari, can you check whether providing additional metadata info will solve the issue?

This fix would be available in the upcoming update of CF2016(update 3) . Following code addition is required to override the behavior. <cfset ret.setMetadata({"Text":"String"})>

Hi Hari, how about patch for CF 11? I can't see that in ColdFusion 11 Update 10.

Hi Chia, ColdFusion 11 Update 10, was a security only release, which will not have feature bug fixes. We will evaluate to see if this can be provided as a patch and get back to you.
