Re: [cdt-dev] Native Serial Port support

Thanks Elena, and sorry about that. I didn't have an API baseline in my new workspace. I've grabbed the most recent 8.6 build and have it now there. I've fixed the SerialPort classes and the Autotools activator class that I added a getService too. (Please don't make your Activator classes in non-internal packages).

BTW, the new baseline pointed out a few other errors. I have a feeling people are still using CDT 8.5 as their baselines. Please make sure you're using 8.6 as the baseline for master.

Change request is here if you're curious:

Doug, I pulled master and I have API errors on serial code - missing since tags and stuff

I’ve written so much code the last few months, a couple more hundred lines of code to get an implementation of serial port at Eclipse with clean pedigree seems worth it to me. And, really, we should have done it a long time ago.

Thanks, though.

Hi Doug,


If jssc has an incompatible license, you may want to have a look at NRJavaSerial:


It’s a fork of RXTX , and while it receives contributions only once in a while it does still look supported : people do attend to pull requests and do answer E-Mails.

I think that the MANIFEST.MF is not OSGi compatible yet, but with just a little bit of love it should be fairly easy to make it a replacement of the lost RXTX .

Hey gang,


As I mentioned earlier, I need serial port support in order to bring the Arduino CDT IDE here to the CDT project. The existing libraries are either dead, rxtx, or have an incompatible license, jssc.


I have a start on the work and have the serial port working on my Mac. It's actually not that hard, at least not on the Mac and Linux. So I've raised a bug and will continue working on it. It's here: https://bugs.eclips​​cgi?id=459971.


Looking at the Windows side, now that the Visual Studio community edition is free, I'll set up our Windows native code for it. If we get around to official CDT support for VS, I'll look at that. But I need this now.


Let me know if you have an thoughts or questions,
