Is TM/RSE right for us? [message #565440] Fri, 12 January 2007 15:32

Greetings All!

I've been given the task of adapting Eclipse to the needs of our
developers and have identified that one of our requirements is to
simplify the process of configuring and launching a debug session on an
embedded target (or simulator). Since this is exactly the sort of thing
that TM/RSE is supposed to handle I thought I would give a shout on this
mailing list to see if anyone can offer any suggestions.

The basic problem is that setting up a debugging environment for us is
much more complicated than the default CDT (+ Zylin patches) launch
configuration allows. In particular it might involve starting several
different processes (each with specific options, sometimes on a remote
target) in the correct order and finally connecting a gdb process.

From scanning the available documentation I get the impression that TM
and RSE provide a basic framework which could be used to automate much
of this, but I'm still unclear on exactly how it could be achieved. For
example might it be possible to create a new debug configuration type
tailored to each of our debugging scenarios and leveraging the RSE
functionality? I'm keen to create as general a framework as possible for
starting auxiliary process and would love to contribute back any code I
produce (subject to the agreement of management / legal bods.).

Does anyone have the slightest idea what I am talking about? If so, can
you offer any comments or suggestions?
