I have a component name TestVO with three properties.
1. keyOne (numeric)
2. keyTwo (numeric)
3. oneDividedByTwo (numeric)

For the 3rd property I wrote a custom getter, which divides value of keyOne by the value of keyTwo, and disabled the setter
Let's say I instantiate the object with keyOne=10 and keyTwo=0. I know this will result in division by zero.
Then put the instantiated object in an array,
var aArray = [oTest];
and put the array in a struct.
var stStruct = {"anArray": aArray};

Then try to get the JSON representation of the structure with serializeJSON...

serializeJSON will NOT fail, but give an invalid json string!! This is not expected!

I expected this to fail, and not generate invalid JSON

If you try to serialize only the array,
an expected error is thrown (Division by zero error)

I have attached a test project so you can use that to verify the error.



It is bad enough that ColdFusion processes this inadequately. But {"anArray":[} as a JSON result? Come on, CF!
