Description Daniel 2017-03-14 07:41:32 UTC
If you have a class named do, class or any reserved keyword in Java, the linker fails to create the Java interop claas.

This can be easy to reproduce with the following code in Android:

    public class @do : Java.Lang.Object


The compilation fails because the generated do.java class it looks like this:

public class do
	extends java.lang.Object


I am using the build tools 7.1 and the latest Xamarin Android stable.

You may want why you want to do that. However this naming happens after the code obfuscation happens. Since Java does not have support for naming classes like that, I guess a prefix would be enough.

Thank you for taking the time to submit the bug. Please attach a reproduction (test project) to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Android project and adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
