      Description

      This is discussed in forum:
      http://forums.java.net/jive/thread.jspa?messageID=301756

      In JavaScript, when passing a "Number" value to a Java method that is expecting a String value and returns a String (i.e. String foo(String arg)). The behavior is different. In 6u7, if Number value = 3, the returned String from Java method is "3", but in 6u10, the return value is "3.0". This is only reproducible with IE.

      jscript version is 5.7.0.16535

      If I set the value of a variable as:
      x=Number(3);
      then it is converted correctly as a java String to "3" in 1.6.0_10.

      But if set the value of a variable (with quotes around the 3) as:
      x=Number("3");
      then it is converted incorrectly as a java String to "3.0" in 1.6.0_10.

      Both result in "typeof x" to return "number" but the objects are obviously slightly different otherwise java would convert them to the same value.
