Hello, I am Creating an eclipse plugin which will allow people to develop and debug for some specific hardware (the devices are programmed in c). We already have the toolchain, compiler, and error parser working, our next step is adding debugging support. |
I have been researching the different eclipse debug libraries and am slightly confused as to which one I should be extending. Or if I am even going about this the right way.
There's the org.eclipse.debug.core, which seems like where I want to go. There is the org.eclipse.cdt.debug.core, and then there is the Debugger Services Framework (DSF) which I haven't been able to find good documentation on.
I have access to a full debug API for the hardware, it's written in java and performs all of the necessary debug functions (set breakpoint, step, halt, read register, source lookup, etc). What I need to do is hook this functionality into eclipse. My plan was to implement the debug interfaces specified by eclipse by using in relevant API calls.
Could anyone point me in the right direction? I have been researching for a few weeks, but do not want to use the "wrong" extension points, and am confused as to which ones I should be extending at all.
In short I already have a library which performs all of the debugging functionality. I want to create an eclipse plugin which will allow users to develop and debug for the hardware. I want to create a new eclipse debugger, which under the hood, will call the existing functions of the library. I am unsure how to hook these two components together.
