Mono for Android which produces the issue
Getting this error when running a HTTPS webservice from Mono for Android, same code works when running from MonoTouch.
System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationException: Deserializing type 'System.Void'. Expecting state 'EndElement'. Encountered state 'Text' with name '' with namespace ''. (1,121)
Full stacktrace here: https://gist.github.com/ff63a01916c935700ca8
Attached it the Mono for Android project with the issue. I will attach the MonoTouch project which works after submitting this bug.
Created attachment 545 [details]
MonoTouch project that works correctly.
We are having the same problem and have determined that the WCF service we are calling will work in mono for android 1.0.3 but will not work in 1.2 (or for that matter 1.9.2 beta)
UPDATE: We also tried this with Mono for Android 4.0 and have the same error. for the time being we are having to use Mono for android 1.0.3 for our app because this is preventing us from talking to the WCF server. We also get this error when we use HTTP instead of HTTPS.
Can anyone tell me when this issue might be resolved?
Jonathan, can you look at this bug?
It should be noted that MonoTouch has apparently regresssed here: running Attachment 545 [details] under MonoTouch 22.214.171.124.1326819896 shows the same exception as Mono for Android produces.
The immediate cause appears to be that System.ServiceModel.Description.ContractDescriptorGenerator.GetMessage() changes the type of the JSMGetDatabasesResult message from `typeof(string)` to `typeof(void)`, which breaks everything else.
I still need to figure out the appropriate fix.
Fixed in master/00e29089 and mono-2-10/51e38b50.
