Description Maxime Brugidou 2013-11-13 07:30:27 UTC
In System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand class, the BeginExecuteInternal() method does not always return the IAsyncResult object.

See https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/System.Data/System.Data.SqlClient/SqlCommand.cs#L849

If you use a stored procedure or a prepared statement, with CommantType.StoredProcedure the ar variable is not set as the result of onnection.Tds.BeginExecuteProcedure().

This crashes your application if you start using the SqlCommand by calling manually:

* EndExecuteNonQuery() which calls
* EndExecuteInternal() which calls
* Connection.Tds.WaitFor (sqlResult.InternalResult) where sqlResult.InternalResult is the set by BeginExecuteInternal() and is null if you use a stored procedure.

This throws a NullReferenceException

To reproduce:

using(var cmd = new SqlCommand())
  cmd.Connection = myConnection; // your connection
  cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure; 
  cmd.CommandText = ""; // your procedure;
  var res = cmd.BeginExecuteNonQuery();

This can easily be fixed by fixing https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/System.Data/System.Data.SqlClient/SqlCommand.cs#L849 and probably https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/System.Data/System.Data.SqlClient/SqlCommand.cs#L883 for prepared statments, assigning to ar the result of the call.

I tested and did a PR on github:

Mono 5.10 has significantly improved System.Data implementation which should resolve this issue. If you can still reproduce it please reopen the issue.
