Update api, empty object update results in array

Hi.
I'm facing some wierd problem with update api.
I have a document with object type inside.
for example:
{
"a":"a",
"b": {"c", "c"}
}
Now I want to update b entry with "{}" (clear object)
I would expect result:
{
"a":"a",
"b": {}
}
But I get:
{
"a":"a",
"b": []
}

ES converts object {} into array []
Why?
Is it issues with ES configuration?

I was testing it on 0.19.8 and 0.20.1
For updates I'm using java api

In the case of

{
"a":"a",
"b": {"c", "c"}
}

I don't think that b is an object.

In the following JSon b should be an object.
{
"a":"a",
"b": {"c" :"value1", "d":"value2"}
}

My two cents.
David.
