Subject [jira] [Created] (AVRO-1981) ReflectionTypeLoadException
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2017 00:38:58 GMT
Josh Steward created AVRO-1981:

             Summary: ReflectionTypeLoadException
                 Key: AVRO-1981
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1981
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: csharp
            Reporter: Josh Steward
            Priority: Minor

In the ObjectCreator the call to FindType(name, throwError) can throw a ReflectionTypeLoadException
during the call to assembly.GetTypes() if any of the types are not able to load, MSDN link
below for ref. This effectively kills the entire deserialization process. I put in a simple
workaround to just continue if this happens. In my particular case it was trying to load types
from a devexpress test runner dll.


private Type FindType(string name,bool throwError)
//other code
foreach (Assembly assembly in assemblies)
                    // Fix for Mono 3.0.10
                    if (assembly.FullName.StartsWith("MonoDevelop.NUnit"))

                    /*Added catch in case assembly contains unloadable types*/ 
                        types = assembly.GetTypes();
                    catch (ReflectionTypeLoadException ex)

//other code
