Description MartinG 2011-12-04 09:00:56 UTC
Following code reproduces JIT compile error on device:
        public void ContinuationTestB()

        private Task<bool> InnerTestB<T>()
            return Task.Factory.StartNew(() => default(T))
                        .ContinueWith(t => true);

Testing on MT5.1 Beta

Errors with:

 System.ExecutionEngineException : Attempting to JIT compile method 'System.Threading.Tasks.Task`1<string>:ContinueWith<bool> (System.Func`2<System.Threading.Tasks.Task`1<string>, bool>,System.Threading.Tasks.TaskScheduler)' while running with --aot-only.

Note that this does not error if the continuation is replaced with a reference type, e.g.:
            return Task.Factory.StartNew(() => default(T))
                        .ContinueWith(t => new object());

This case has been added to our test suite.
Comment 2 Sebastien Pouliot 2013-05-29 20:17:50 UTC
This test case works fine in 6.3.x.

6.3.x beta releases have much improved to avoid this situation (the EngineExecutionException). You might want to try this, or similar code, again and report any remaining issues (with a test case).
