[patch][ccla] JSON parsing tests should use strict parsing

Reported by: andybalaam Owned by: andybalaam
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.9
Component: Core Version: 1.8.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


Some of the tests in dojo/tests/json.js don't pass the "strict" flag to the JSON.parse function.

This flag has no effect in environments which provide a built-in JSON object.

In environments that fall back to the Dojo JSON parsing, this flag enables the safety check regular expression.

To ensure there are no bugs in this regular expression, we should pass strict=true to JSON.parse in all tests.

The TestFramework category is for bugs in DOH itself, not for tests written using DOH.

Kris, please review this one as well for 1.9.

We do have strict tests to that exercise the regular expressions (in older IE). If we made all the tests strict than we wouldn't be verifying the non-script code path would we?
