JSON.parse not working


it "can parse JSON" do
    require 'json'
    JSON.parse'{"name": "value"}')
Fails with the following when executed:

can parse JSON
 Failure/Error: JSON.parse'{"name": "value"}')
   unexpected token in object at '"name": "value"}'!
 # C:/Program Files (x86)/IronRuby 1.1/Lib/ruby/1.9.1/json/common.rb:146:in `parse'
 # ./ruby/spec/go_artifacts_spec.rb:16
This is using IronRuby 1.1.3
