Description Dylan Borg 2013-09-21 04:29:47 UTC
While loading a WebApi project under xsp (used to work with Moino 3.2.1) a ReflectionTypeLoadException gets thrown under Mono 3.2.3. The fllowing is the JSON I get when I do a request:

    "ExceptionType": "System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException",
    "Message": "The classes in the module cannot be loaded.",
    "StackTrace": " at (wrapper managed-to-native) System.Reflection.Assembly:GetTypes (System.Reflection.Assembly,bool)\n at System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExportedTypes () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 \n at System.Web.Http.Dispatcher.DefaultHttpControllerTypeResolver.GetControllerTypes (IAssembliesResolver assembliesResolver) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 \n at System.Web.Http.WebHost.WebHostHttpControllerTypeResolver.GetControllerTypes (IAssembliesResolver assembliesResolver) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 \n at System.Web.Http.Dispatcher.HttpControllerTypeCache.InitializeCache () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 \n at System.Lazy`1[System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2[System.String,System.Linq.ILookup`2[System.String,System.Type]]].InitValue () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 "

Try running xsp with
That might print more information about the problem.

The problems seems to go away using the latest mono packaging from debian for mono 3.2.3 instead of the one I did.
