bugrepro_dotnetcore_missingmethod

Issue reproduction for AspNetCore.TestHost throwing a missing method exception when running in a dotnet core app targeting the full framework.

When referencing Microsoft.AspNetCore.TestHost (https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.AspNetCore.TestHost/) nuget package in a .NET Core project that targets net461, a MissingMethodException is thrown when trying to create an HttpClient:

Error Message:
 System.MissingMethodException : 
   Method not found: 'System.Net.Http.HttpClient Microsoft.AspNetCore.TestHost.TestServer.CreateClient()'.

It is also thrown when creating a "classic" .NET Framework class library and using PackageReferences for NuGet.

The exception is not thrown when targeting netcoreapp1.0, or when creating a "classic" .NET Framework class library using packages.config for NuGet, or when running under as a console app instead of a unit test.

Adding auto binding redirects fixes the issue (see: https://github.com/aspnet/Hosting/issues/926#issuecomment-276773662):

    <GenerateBindingRedirectsOutputType>true</GenerateBindingRedirectsOutputType>
    <AutoGenerateBindingRedirects>true</AutoGenerateBindingRedirects>

All projects include a single xUnit test that creates a TestServer and then creates an HttpClient from that server.

Projects included for reproduction of the issue:

  • TestHostDebug: .NET Core xUnit project targeting net461
  • TestHostDebugNetCore: .NET Core xUnit project targeting netcoreapp1.0
  • TestHostDebugFull: Full .NET Framework xUnit project, using csproj PackageReferences to reference Microsoft.AspNetCore.TestHost
  • TestHostDebugPackageConfig: Full .NET Framework xUnit project, using traditional packages.config to reference Microsoft.AspNetCore.TestHost
  • TestHostDebugConsole: .NET Core console app targeting net461
  • TestHostDebugBindingRedirect: .NET Core xUnit project targeting net461 with auto binding redirects.
