Honor strict argument to JSObject::setProperty


(Core :: JavaScript Engine, defect)

Not set





(Reporter: jorendorff, Assigned: jorendorff)



(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

ES5 specifies that some functions do strict assignments. We get these wrong. For example:

    js> var obj = {pop: [].pop, 0: "zero", get length() { return 1; }};
    js> obj.pop()
    js> "use strict"; obj.pop();
    typein:3:14 TypeError: setting a property that has only a getter

It should throw because Array.prototype.pop does a strict assignment to obj.length, which has a getter and no setter. Whether the caller is strict shouldn't matter.

Chrome and Safari do a non-strict assignment in both cases.

We should try to follow the spec.
Attached patch v1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
I reviewed the patch that introduced this behavior, in bug 536306; using the caller's strictness was an improvement over the previous behavior, which was to crash.

Take it if you want it.  :-)  I had to look because I thought bug 858381 proved this stuff all worked -- but I guess array length special-casing made things work for non-writable length, but not for anything along these lines.  Blargh.

Were it me I might plausibly hold off on landing til after the branch, just in case something stupid warrants a temporary backout that'd have to span release branches.  Could be paranoia, tho; up to you.

Is JSREPORT_STRICT_MODE_ERROR even necessary here any more, now that strict is passed in by the caller?

Looking more broadly, it looks like almost every single use of JSREPORT_STRICT_MODE_ERROR these days is in a context where we *know* strictness, and should be testing and passing it directly.  (The only exception I see is dom/bindings/DOMJSProxyHandler.cpp's use, which we can only eliminate with MOP changes from bug 826587.  I can't wait til all these other projects get done, to get back to working on that.  :-\ )  We should change these in some sort of followup, although you might as well fix this one while you're here.

Oh, for what it's worth all those set-length calls before bug 858381 were passing false -- I should have thought to have tested SetLengthProperty's changes there with a getter-only length accessor when writing tests there.  :-(
Attached patch v2Splinter Review
Carrying forward review. The only changes here are to tests:

- Remove a few tests involving array.sort() from

- Add more thorough array.sort() tests in

But as a result, this now has wait for assertEqual (bug 866849 part 1).
