Re: [cdt-dev] Question on future debugger interface

If you implement mi protocol it is less work on IDE side (just another launch config), however mi does not support all commands and mi integration use "CDI" (user gdb) commands too, which makes it ugly.

The other approach is to create another implementation of this layer for your specific debugger, which would be more work but it may be more robust.

Hi all,

The open source Frysk debugger development team( is currently debating how best to integrate with the Eclipse CDT plugin. We have been discussing the pros and cons of the two different ways to interface: 1) have an API library such as libfrysk or 2) use the current wire protocol used by gdb/mi that is currently in use in the CDT. The Frysk team would very much appreciate the opinion(s) of the CDT developers as regards to which way they would prefer to see a debugger interface with the CDT and why. Which way would make it the easiest for developers to use? Thank you in advance for your time.
