Description damirainullin 2014-11-06 09:21:42 UTC
I use a simple console application. OS Ubuntu 14.04, Mono JIT compiler version 3.10.0
I change the HttpContext.Current property and try to get ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["some-setting"] field.

using System;
using System.Web;
using System.IO;
using System.Configuration;

namespace HttpContextCurrent
	class MainClass
		public static void Main (string[] args)
			    HttpContext.Current = new HttpContext(
					new HttpRequest("some-filename", "http://www.bing.com/", string.Empty),
				    new HttpResponse(new StringWriter()));

				var someSettings = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["some-setting"];
			catch(Exception ex)
				Console.WriteLine (ex.ToString());

After this I catch NullReferenceException with next stack trace:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
