Stub Generator project

I just published a stub generator utility on CodePlex :

The stub generator reads a DLL using Cecil and generates C# stubs for the DLL.

We have tested it on some complex DLLs, and although it is not bug free it pretty much works.

If someone wants to write a cool U/I this would be greatly appreciated.

Syndication - RSS 2.0 working !

The RSS 2.0 syndication sample in MSDN now works in Mono's latest bits.
I believe it is now possible to write a WCF service that consumes and exposes RSS feeds.

Give it a try and let me know how things work out.

Syndication - RSS 2.0 (almost) working !

I have been working in the past few days on getting the basic RSS feed sample from MSDN to work in Mono.

The sample is at the bottom of this page:

I haven't committed all the fixes yet, but the status is that a valid RSS feed is generated. The part that consumes the RSS feed is not working yet.

There is also an additional small bug discovered that I did not fix yet in the following code:
Uri baseAddress = new Uri("http://localhost:8000/BlogService");
WebServiceHost svcHost = new WebServiceHost(typeof(Service), baseAddress);;

The host does not listen on the base address. The workaround is to add an additional Endpoint before penning the host, like this:
svcHost.AddServiceEndpoint (typeof (IService), new WebHttpBinding (), baseAddress);

I will update when the entire sample is working.


Serialization of byte[]

Across .NET now also works.

Before it was serialized differently than .NET, so Mono<->Mono worked but .NET<->Mono did not.
