|[dsdp-dd-dev] Sharing launch UI|
Forwarding to CDT|
I discovered yesterday that platform has a mechanism for different debuggers to share the same launch configuration UI in a clean way. This mechanism may what we need to put some sanity into managing the launch UI between CDT, DSF, and various proprietary debuggers.

Yes - this allows different tooling to be provided for the same feature. For example, two different Java profilers that can launch Java Application launch configurations. Not only can they launch/share the configuration, they can contribute extra tabs to the configuration. The user can decide which tool to use for a given config type/launch mode in user preferences (or they will be prompted to choose one at launch time). > > The use case I'm thinking of is the launch configurations in CDT. > Currently if the user installs both the CDI-based GDB implementation > and a DSF-based implementation, he will see both launch > configurations in the dialog, which is rather ugly. If the configurations contain the same information (i.e. enough common info that either tool could launch them) then the above feature could be used. The user would just have to choose a "preferred launcher" in the preferences.
