Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-519) FileReader.readAsText performs automatic JSON.parse
Date Mon, 16 Apr 2012 18:52:19 GMT
FileReader.readAsText performs automatic JSON.parse

                 Key: CB-519
             Project: Apache Callback
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: WP7
    Affects Versions: 1.6.1
         Environment: VS.NET 2010 and WP7.1 emulator
            Reporter: Alan Neveu
            Assignee: Jesse MacFadyen
            Priority: Minor

After upgrading from 1.5 I find that FileReader.readAsText takes the liberty of performing
a JSON.parse if my file happens to be a stringified JSON object. While this seems like a nice
addition, my app connects to an ASP.NET web service which uses Microsoft's serialization objects
to serve the JSON to my app. Because of this I have had to roll my own JSON parse and stringify
functions to deal with Microsoft's version of date serialization.  I am able to work with
the automatic JSON.parse by checking for typeof == "object" and if that is what FileReader.readAsText
has returned then I go ahead and use my own JSON.stringify and JSON.parse and go along on
my way. But I thought it was odd that this automatic JSON.parse would happen in the first
place, so I submit this as a bug in case someone was doing some testing/debugging and accidentally
left a line of code in place that should really not be there.  I can live with it if it is
intentional, but I think it would be more intuitive to not do automatic JSON operations that
the function name does not indicate.
