Re: [cdt-dev] LLVM Project Blog: A path forward for an LLVM toolchain on Windows

That's one possible solution, although the repo you mention is 2 years without a change. But I have a feeling an external database accessed via Java either through shared mapping of the database file or some really fast IPC would be the way to go.

My biggest worry with using Clang is that we don't end up back where we were with the full indexer with index times measured in hours. That's what gave us such a bad reputation in the early days.

Clang, on the other hand, comes very close to implementing the standard to a tee, and it would be really nice to be able to reuse the excellent work that clang developers have been doing (and will continue to do) in CDT. I'm not sure whether/how that's possible.

Maybe it would be possible to run clang or a clang based tool as a separate process from CDT. And read the externally generated database from CDT/java. This could be an optional 2nd parser which would only be used if clang is available. Such a clang based indexer generating a database is available at:
