Porting Issues: CompositeUI assembly


Issue 1:

 

.NET
CF Does not support System.Runtime.Serialization

The
follow types have been given the Serializable attribute:



CyclicDependencyFoundException
State
StateElement
StateException
BuilderStrategyException
AdapterMapServiceException
CommandException
ConfigurationException
SolutionProfileReaderException
SolutionProfileElement
ModuleInfoElement
RoleElement
EventBrokerException
EventTopicException
ModuleEnumeratorException
ModuleLoadException
ServiceMissingException
StatePersistenceException

Can we simply make these types nonserializable for CF?

(resolution: ???)

 

Issue 2:

 

.NET
CF Does not support System.Diagnostics.TraceSource

(resolution: removed tracing)

commented
out ClassNameTraceSourceAttribute

 

Issue :3

 

.NET
CF does not support System.Configuration

(resolution: use xml file based configuration)

commented out ConfigurationPropertyAttribute in
ServiceElement.cs

ApplicationSettingsBase not
supported.

Created custom
Microsoft.Practices.CF.CompositeUI.Configuration.WM5.ConfigurationElement, ConfigurationElementCollection,
ConfigurationManager, ConfigurationProperty, ConfigurationSection, ConfigurationErrorsException

Commented out ConfigurationCollectionAttribute

 

Issue :4

 

.NET
CF does not support System.ComponentModel.Design namespace. Specifically
ComponentDesigner, System.ComponentModel.BrowsableAttribute

(resolution: need to research now CF provides Designer
functionality)

(resolution: moved Browsable attribute to custom attributes in
Class Diagram.

need to move ComponentDesigner to external assembly, for short
term we commented out designer)

 

.NET CF does not support
System.ComponentModel.TypeConverter.StandardValuesCollection

(CompositeUI:SmartPartInfo).

(resolution: need to move to same external assembly as
above)

 

Issue :5

 

.NET
CF does not support System.Security.Permissions.SecurityPermission

(resolution: ???)

 

.NET
CF does not support System.Security.Principal namespace and more specifically
the System.Security.Principal.PrincipalPolicy enum.

(resolution: ???)

for now, the Permissions were commented out

per edjez: remove principal from SolutionProfileReader and also
from XSD

 

Issue :6

 

.NET CF does not support System.IO.IsolatedStorage namespace.

Specifically IsolatedStorageScope

(CompositeUI:IsolatedStorageStatePersistenceService)

(resolution: removed IsolatedStorageStatePersistenceService.cs)

 

Issue :7

 

.NET CF does not support
System.Threading.ReaderWriterLock.

(CompositeUI:StateElement, WorkItem, LockBase, ReaderLock)

(resolution: ???)

commenting
out ReaderWriterLock references

exclude ReaderLock and WriterLock from project

 

Issue :8

 

.NET CF does not support System.CodeDom.CodeObject.(CompositeUI:DesignerCodeDomSerializer).

(resolution: ???)

exclude from project

 

Issue :9

 

.NET CF does not support
System.Security.Cryptography.DataProtectionScope

(CompositeUI:DataProtectionCryptographyService).

(resolution: ???)

removed
DataProtectionCryptographyService from
CabApplication.cs item.Services

 

Issue: 10


System.ComponentModel.TypeConverterAttribute not
supported

[TypeConverter(typeof (TypeNameConverter))] attribute commented out pending
moving TypeConverter to external assembly.

Issue: 11

SynchronizationContext not supported: needs to be re-arch
Subscription.cs
(workaround: get back to the UI thread by
using a control and .Invoke?)

(simplifying resolution: do not support Thread.UIThread)

Issue: 12

no support for CultureInfo.InstalledUICulture
(resolution: replaced with
CurrentUICulture)

Issue: 13

no support for Delegate.CreateDelegate (Publication.cs), Delegate.Target and Delegate.Method
(Command.cs), Delegate.DynamicInvoke (Subscription.cs)
(resolution: find out
how the heck += works and mimic that)

Issue: 14

no support for System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary.BinaryFormatter
(StreamStatePersistenceService.cs)
(resolution: remove this service - we can write another
implemnentation later)

Issue: 15

no support for AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory
(ReflectionModuleEnumerator.cs,
SolutionProfileReader.cs)

(resolution: remove reflection module enumerator; in solProfReader
use whatever the CF has to determine current dir )
Created BaseDirectory
property in ApplicationSettingsBase.cs.

Issue: 16

no support for System.Reflection.Assembly.LoadFile(ReflectionModuleEnumerator.cs)
(resolution: remove reflection
enumerator)

Issue: 17

no support
for System.Reflection.Assembly.CodeBase (ModuleInfo.cs)
(resolution: replace
assembly.CodeBase with assembly.GetName().CodeBase)

Issue: 18

Stream.Dispose() inaccessible due to "Protected"
protection level.(SolutionProfileReader.cs)
(resolution: utilize "using"
statement on stream assignment thus indirectly calling Dispose via IDisposable
interface)

Issue: 19

Verify SolutionProfileReader.cs
GetValidatingReader method: When should stream get disposed? Currently CAB
disposes reader immediately after creating schemaReader with stream as a param.
Will disposing stream effect schemaReader?

Issue: 20

no support for
System.Reflection.Assembly.GetEntryAssembly()
(CabApplication.cs)
(resolution:
substitute with GetExecutingAssembly)

Issue: 21

no support for
System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExportedTypes
()
(ModuleLoaderService.cs)
(resolution: wrote custom
CFAssemblyUtil.GetExportedTypes(assembly))

Issue: 22

no support for
System.Reflection.MethodInfo.GetMethodFromHandle method with 2 params (method
and type).
(Subscription.cs)
(resolution:
eliminate type param???)
