Re: [cdt-dev] About default debuggers, etc

Sounds like we would need an gdbserver replacement, equivalent to the Windows EDC agent. I haven't looked at gdbserver in years but it was pretty simple back then. Be careful of the licensing, though, to avoid any GPL code getting accidentally brought over.

I agree. It would be nice if gdbserver talked TCF but I just don't see the incentive. GDB has been around much longer than TCF and is pervasive in both the desktop and embedded OS world. More likely is the use of TCF agents that act as a bridge to the gdb world, as per what Nokia contributed for Linux.

We are also interested in TCF, actually we did a few improvements that are now merged in the TCF repository (thanks to Michael Sills-Lavoie) e.g.:
 - TCF binary transfer;
 - allow TCF services to be distributed outside of the TCF source tree;
Those TCF additions allowed us to created a Linux tracing TCF agent, you can find a high level view at http://git.dorsal.polymtl.ca/?p=lttng-dev-doc.git;a=blob_plain;f=arch_graph/lttng-arch.pdf

Regarding debug it would be nice to have gdbserver/GDB talk TCF, Ericsson alone might have a hard time convincing the GDB community but if we are a few we could come up we a good plan, if other are interested please let me know.
