In the code below, I've found that the returned Descriptor* is NULL after I
call FindMessageTypeByName(), *unless* I first call FindFileByName() on the
.proto which contains the Message I am looking for.
Is this a bug? Is there another way to do this? I would really like to be
able to setup a SourceTreeDescriptorDatabase to a directory that contains
all of the .proto files I plan to use and not have to search for each file
Any advice is much appreciated.
const FileDescriptor* pfd = dp.FindFileByName("TestMessage.proto");
const Descriptor* pd = dp.FindMessageTypeByName("Test.TestMessage");
