Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1407) JSON encoding of number changes
Date Sat, 11 Feb 2012 17:22:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1407?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13206184#comment-13206184

Robert Newson commented on COUCHDB-1407:
----------------------------------------

For my part, I fully accept the notion that we've adhered to the JSON semantics for numbers.
However, I think we all recognize that the JSON semantics for numbers are rubbish.

At the very least, as I noted on the 1.2.0 voting thread, this should be recorded in 'BREAKING
CHANGES' but I think we ought to fix it. I will devote some cycles to that end.

> JSON encoding of Number has changed from 1.0.2 to 1.2. JSON only defines Number but this
change causes issues in my app because python decodes the number as an int in 1.2.
> Test case:
> PORT=5985
> curl -X DELETE http://localhost:$PORT/test-floats/
> curl -X PUT http://localhost:$PORT/test-floats/
> curl -X PUT http://localhost:$PORT/test-floats/doc1 -H "Content-Type: application/json"
-d "{ \"a\": 1.0 }"
> curl http://localhost:$PORT/test-floats/doc1
> Run against 1.0.2:
> {"ok":true}
> {"ok":true}
> {"ok":true,"id":"doc1","rev":"1-78e61304147429d3d500aee7806fd26d"}
> {"_id":"doc1","_rev":"1-78e61304147429d3d500aee7806fd26d","a":1.0}
> Run against 1.2:
> {"ok":true}
> {"ok":true}
> {"ok":true,"id":"doc1","rev":"1-78e61304147429d3d500aee7806fd26d"}
> {"_id":"doc1","_rev":"1-78e61304147429d3d500aee7806fd26d","a":1}
