I had written one method and call back method for continuation....

global class MyWrapper {
    public static object state{get;set;}
    public String Request { get; set; }
    public String Variable1 { get; set; }
    public String Variable2 { get; set; }

    global MyWrapper(String req, String var1, String var2) {
        Request = req;
        Variable1 = var1;
        Variable2 = var2;

    //continuation method
    global static somemehod(string par1,id par2,boolean par3){

       continuation.state = assgininment;

    //call back method
    public static object(object state){

In the above line i am getting an error continuation:

state does not exist.

when i tried declaring the state variable globally , in call back method it is showing an error like duplicate variable state.any suggestions how to resolve it.???

  • Can you show your params in method? Where declared Contination instance variable? – RasMisha Sep 4 '16 at 12:11
  • Your code doesn't look much like the example in the Continuation Class documentation. And I can imagine static fields and fields declared to be of type Object not being preserved. – Keith C Sep 4 '16 at 12:32

You need to instantiate an instance of the Continuation class in order to assign to the state, because it is an instance variable, not a static variable of the Continuation class - see this example from the documentation (I wish it showed them actually declaring Continuation continuationInstance = new Continuation()):

// Declare inner class to hold state info
private class StateInfo {
    String msg { get; set; }
    List<String> urls  { get; set; }
    StateInfo(String msg, List<String> urls) {
        this.msg = msg;
        this.urls = urls;

// Then in the action method, set state for the continuation
continuationInstance.state = new StateInfo('Some state data', urls);

The error you are seeing is the parser interpreting Continuation.state as an attempt to reference a static variable state in the Continuation class, which does not exist.
