Description John Lyon-Smith 2014-02-13 20:55:39 UTC
The code in CreateWebRequest calls its base class method:

    HttpWebRequest httpWebRequest = base.CreateWebRequest(request);

This in turn creates an HttpWebRequest:

    HttpWebRequest httpWebRequest = new HttpWebRequest(request.RequestUri);

Further down in the CreateWebRequest call another call is made to set_ImpersonationLevel:

public TokenImpersonationLevel ImpersonationLevel
        throw WebRequest.GetMustImplement();

Which has the implementation:

private static Exception GetMustImplement()
	return new NotImplementedException("This method must be implemented in derived classes");

This manifests in libraries such as AWSSDK v2.0 where calls to the S3 classes fail because of this exception.

I can confirm this error also using AWSSDK using SimpleDB classes.
