Re: [cdt-dev] CDI is now removed for CDT 9.0

Hi Martin,

I have submitted a couple of gerrits to fix the issue as far as I can tell.

TCF still had dependency on org.eclipse.cdt.debug.mi.{core,ui} but TCF was not actually using them, so I updated manifests, features, etc. See and its associated gerrit

While I was there I found an upcoming API incompatibility error because of some other (unrelated to CDI removal) API change. I have raised a bug and provided a fix. See and its associated gerrit Note this won't build until your target platform is updated for a more recent CDT build.

I trust I have addressed your issues. Please let me know if there is anything I can help in with the transition away from CDI.

Hi Martin,

I will have a look at TCF this weekend and see if I can make a suggestion. I am not familiar with TCF, so perhaps I can come back to you (via this list) with follow ups?

Hi all,


Turned out that the TCF Project’s “C/C++ Remote Debug (over TCF/TE) Launch” used CDI:


We’d appreciate your help and suggestions how to resolve this.


Essentially, this Launcher uses TCF/TE for bootstrapping (download the exe, launch gdbserver).

Since CDT now offers org.eclipse.remote for these services, and TCF/TE offers an o.e.remote

Filesystem implementation, there is a potential chance going that route; but it is possible that

some features of TCF/TE are lost that way.


Keeping the launcher, and using DSF instead of CDI is obviously the other option. Are there any

Migration docs? Could you assist us with migration based on your experience so far ?


Many thanks !

Subject: [cdt-dev] CDI is now removed for CDT 9.0


Hey gang,

Thanks to the hard work of Jonah and the thorough review with Marc, the CDI debug framework has now been removed for CDT 9.0.

This is something we talked about for a long time as our focus switched solely to DSF and CDI was left unmaintained. CDI got us on a great start, but we really don't have enough contributions to keep both going.

Please test out against CDT master and let us know if we over deleted anything.
