TCF 1.5 New & Noteworthy

TCF 1.5 was released on 28-Jun-2017 with Eclipse Oxygen. See also the TCF/DraftPlan15 .

Besides improved platform coverage and robustness, the primary Themes of the 1.5 are the new WebSockets and Tunnelling support, ARM64 Debug Enhancements, and improved documentation.

TCF API and Protocol

All API Additions are marked with "@since 1.5" in the TCF Protocol Java Interfaces.

  • Added Port Forwarding and Port Server services support in TCF Agent. Those services allow a TCF peer to gain access to a port on remote peer or expose a local port to remote peer. Essentially, support tunnelling any TCP/IP communication through a TCF Connection, including Web Sockets with the below addition to TCF Agent. See also the respective TCF Agent Commits.
  • New class to represent user defined peers: UserDefPeer

The TCF Services Docs have been updated in some cases, but not all; if in doubt, the Java interfaces linked from above should be consulted as the API references. Documentation Bugs have been opened to get the services docs back in sync. Community contributions would be appreciated on this documentation effort.

The TCF Python Binding is mostly on par with the Java binding and actively being tested, maintained and improved. If in doubt regarding protocol API, the Java interfaces as linked from above should be consulted.
