Re: [dsdp-dd-dev] New type of launch discussion
I think the use of "local" and "remote" have a clear
meaning in a desktop environment but not in the embedded space.
= debugging an application running on the machine
hosting the debugger
= debugging an application running on a remote

drives the probe over TCP/IP
- talking to an agent on the device (e.g.,

Unfortunately, I don't think there's going to be a perfect set of names
for launch types that serves all these use cases, but as long as these
scenarios are kept in mind, there's a chance of coming up with something

I don't believe CDI supports this. However, I would like to add
DSF-GDB (as we discussed in a previous meeting.)
Having looked at the design of such support, I got to
the launches should be divided into two types:
Each of these would support
- start an application
- attach to running application
I think this makes sense to a user, and allows for the most code
It also reduces the number of launch configuration types.
My concern is that maybe it is too late to remove the "Attach to
local running application"
launch configuration type since we are past M7.
Any thoughts in the proposal and how to go about it?
