I want to develop and debug C++ software to be executed on Raspberry Pi (controller).

I have working Eclipse Oxygen on x86 architecture.
I can use either 32 bits Eclipse Oxygen or 64 bits running on appropriate OS Ubuntu .
I understand that currently there is no Eclipse Oxygen for ARM (Raspberry Pi) no issue there. I am using Eclipse just because it does the job for me.

At current time , the Raspberry Pi OS is Rasbpian 32 bits.
( I do have plans to experiment with others OS, perhaps real 64 bits, in future.)

I feel the simplest way to physically debug / observe the desired I/O operations is to to have Eclipse "workspace" residing on the Raspberry Pi.
To that effect I implemented samba server on Raspberry Pi and have access to Raspberry Pi resources.

Does this sounds KISS , plausible ?
Thanks for your time.

No, this does not sound right. you should run Eclipse on your host (Windows/Linux/Mac) machine. Then using remote debug to debug and run on the target (Raspberry Pi). That would be KISS as that is what most people do when developing for an embedded target.

Not sure I fully get the concept of running the development on one and remote debug on another system.
I'll do some study on that, maybe I am making it more complex than it is.
Would this also present a problem - the development runs on x86 architecture of Eclipse - Oxygen.
At present Raspberry Pi - ARM architecture is "stuck" on Eclipse 3.8.
Apparently I would have to compile my own ARM version of Oxygen, probably even change Raspberry OS to Ubuntu same time to make life easier.
I am not sure 3.8 has a "remote ' ability.
Either way - would there be a single copy of workspace files and where?

I did try my convoluted scheme but could not execute Oxygen on the PC, I need to remove all Eclipse 3.8 code I still have floating around.
