Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2017-03-03 23:18:18 UTC
XA doesn't ship SymbolWriter and our SRE impl throws if you request that symbols be produced.

We should fail silently in this case and produce a warning.

It would be even better if we shipped a symbol writer for Android, thought that would have very limited value.
Comment 1 Katelyn Gadd 2017-04-03 14:21:13 UTC
What scenarios need to be addressed here? Invoking R.E at runtime on Android to generate and then dynamically load an assembly, with symbols on? Or R.E when running inside XA on a Mac desktop? I'm guessing it's the former.
Comment 2 Rodrigo Kumpera 2017-04-04 23:18:48 UTC
The former, XA on desktop is only relevant for the designer team.
