Silverlight port

Dec 13, 2009 at 2:58 AM


I tried to port your code to SL, everyting went fine 99% of the code compiled without any problems. Well I had to add some classes to SL that were missing in SL, such ArrayList, SerializationInfo, I took them from mscorlib, 
the only major change I had to is this

            assemblyBuilder = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly(

            moduleBuilder = assemblyBuilder.DefineDynamicModule(
                assemblyName.Name + ".dll",
            assemblyBuilder = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly(
            moduleBuilder = assemblyBuilder.DefineDynamicModule(assemblyName.Name, true);

works ok though. Now when I try to run tests from GeneralTests class I get such an exception for this line
ObjectsMapperBaseImpl result =
the exception is
Method 'CreateTargetInstance' on type 'ObjectsMapper1_SL.Test.GeneralTests+Simple2_SL.Test.GeneralTests+Simple10b6064c1714144b9a905f934a237ced9b' 
from assembly 'EmitMapperAssembly.SL, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' is overriding a method that is not visible from that assembly.
maybe you have some ideas how to solver this. If this is solved the port to SL might be considered done :)
I can send the full solution if you want.

Eugen, thanks a lot for porting the library to SL!

To solve the issue you described below add the folowing line to AssemblyInfo.cs

[assembly: InternalsVisibleTo("EmitMapperAssembly")]

So, I'm very interesting whether SL port will work :)

After this the simple tests worked fine.
It failed on General_Test1 with some weird message, like "This operation could crash the run-time" :)

Here is the full solution if you want to take it from here

Let me know of your investigation.

Many thanks!

So, I'have made some changes and managed to run the library on Silverlight and it passed all tests (from your port). The changes are in the SVN. Actually 2 files were changed:

  1. EmitMapper\EmitBuilders\MappingOperationsProcessor.cs
  2. EmitMapper\EmitInvoker\Delegates\DelegateInvoker.cs

Just replace them with the latest from SVN and tests will pass.

that's good to hear, I added some more tests and seems to work good. you can declare an official SL release :)

I fixed few SL-specific bugs in addidion and now all unit tests are passed on sliverlight. So, Silverlight port is available now in the main trunk in SVN.

great news. Now library can be considered complete. :)
