  • SPIRIT
    • IPXACT Editor & Checker (downloadable)
  • Memory
    • Traditional Memory Rendering (downloadable)
  • DSF
    • DSF SDK (downloadable)
      • Service and concurrency APIs, base implementations, and utilities
      • Debugger services' interface definitions
      • Implementation of Platform and CDT APIs to populate debugger views with data from DSF debugger services.
  • GDB/MI
    • GDB Debugger (downloadable)
      • Base classes for a debugger implementation based on generic GDB/MI protocol back end.
      • Debugger implementation based on GNU GDB back end.
    • GDB Launch (downloadable)
      • Launch configurations for the GDB debugger.
  • Disassembly
    • Sub project work to be delivered as part of CDT.
  • Multi-Context
    • Sub project work to be delivered as part of Eclipse SDK.

Release Milestones

Device Debugging project has dependencies on Platform, CDT, EMF projects. Milestone build dates follow two weeks behind Platform:

  • Friday Oct. 5, 2007 - Milestone 2 (3.4 M2) - stable build
  • Friday Nov. 16, 2007 - Milestone 3 (3.4 M3) - stable build
  • Friday Dec. 28, 2007 - Milestone 4 (3.4 M4) - stable build
  • Friday Feb. 22, 2008 - Milestone 5 (3.4 M5) - stable build

Target Operating Environments

Most of DD deliverables do not have any platform-dependent components, which means that they are supported on all platforms that their dependencies are supported on. Exceptions are listed here:

Deliverable Reference Platforms
GDB/MI Linux - x86
