Environment:all ( tested on Linux x86_64, Ubuntu 14.4 & RHEL-6.6 )
groovy.json.JsonSlurper exits with an error when parsing valid JSON :
AFAICS, escaped chars ARE supported by the JSON Specification , as reported by
"A string is a sequence of zero or more Unicode characters, wrapped in double
quotes, using backslash escapes."
Any occurrence of a back-slash escape sequence in a JSON string makes groovy fail
to parse the JSON, which is unfortunate, since my company's Microsoft web
application server translates all occurrences of the '/' character in JSON responses
to '\/', so we cannot use groovy to parse any of its JSON output.
Any chance of a standards-compliant JSON parser in groovy anytime soon, or do I
need to write my own ?
