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

Hi Rick,

MI is definitely the easiest way to integrate a debugger into CDT. If
implemented it will be automatically picked up by existing CDI and DSF
gdb/MI debuggers.
But if the API library provides more functionality than MI it might be
worth to consider a direct integration using one of the existing
frameworks. But it would require a lot of work and resources.

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

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.
