Subject [jira] [Closed] (COUCHDB-1624) CouchDB shouldn't accept or serve JSON with control-characters
Date Sat, 08 Dec 2012 10:57:21 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1624?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Paul Joseph Davis closed COUCHDB-1624.
--------------------------------------

    Resolution: Not A Problem

I guess I can't say that Svenson is unequivocally wrong but given that the RFC explicitly
defines control characters and the major third-party parsers don't include that high range
I'm closing this as not a problem. That Svenson is more strict here is Svenson's decision.

> According to http://www.json.org/ control-characters are not valid characters in JSON.
Due to a character encoding bug one of our applications was sending JSON with control-characters
to CouchDB. CouchDB happily accepts this (invalid) JSON and also serves it, but then we started
getting problems in a client that uses the Svenson JSON library which (correctly) complains
about invalid characters in the JSON served by CouchDB.
