Allow Strings to be written to and read from JSON numeric types.

Relevant Use Cases:

  • Ensure I can get a value represented as 1.23e10 (JSON allows this representation)
  • If I have a form that is being using to collection data, this data can be written to JSON without first having to convert it to a numeric type.
  • Make it easier to port data from XML to JSON, again no need to first convert it to a numeric type.

Suggest the following methods in JsonGenerator.

JsonGenerator writeNumber(String name, String number)
JsonGenerator writeNumber(String number)

The number string value needs to be validated as per JSON grammar.
