Title: Embedded Linux Development with Eclipse


1
Embedded Linux Development with Eclipse
  • JT Thomas, MontaVista Software

2
Agenda
  • Eclipse History and Overview
  • Key Eclipse Projects for embedded
  • Step-by-Step to build, deploy, and debug
  • Working examples using DevRocket
  • Future Eclipse Projects for embedded
  • Questions Answers

3
Eclipse History and Overview
  • Donated by IBM to open source community in NOV
    2001
  • An open development platform and a community
  • Multi-platform GUI for anything and nothing in
    particular
  • Java plug-in architecture
  • Governed by Eclipse Public License (EPL)
  • Initially implemented as a Java integrated
    development environment (JDT)
  • Eclipse foundation formed in JAN 2004
  • Many language and software development focused
    plug-ins and environments
  • Major sub-projects coordinated releases every
    June

4
Eclipse has grown up!
5
Key Eclipse Projects for embedded
  • CDT C/C Development Toolkit
  • C/C source code editor and indexer
  • Syntax highlighting and object browsing
  • Build management
  • Binary parsing
  • Native support for GCC/GDB
  • RSE Remote Systems Explorer
  • Consistent interface across multiple targets
  • Many connection mechanisms
  • Filesystem management
  • Process management
  • Shell (and terminal) access

6
Installing and Updating Eclipse
  • eclipse.org/downloads
  • Updating and finding plug-ins

7
Step 1 Setting up a Target
  • Install RSE plugin
  • Setup SSH server on target
  • Open Remote Systems Explorer Perspective
  • Create SSH Only RSE connection
  • Open integrated shell on target
  • Perform file management tasks on target

8
Step 2 Building an application
  • Open C/C Perspective
  • Create new Managed Make C project
  • Open build setting and preface compiler command
    line name with architecture name
  • i.e. armv6_gcc
  • Build application

9
Step 3 Deploying an application
  • Open RSE perspective
  • Drag-and-drop binary from Local system to target
  • Open integrated remote shell
  • Run application from shell

10
Step 4 Debugging an application
  • Setup launch configuration (Run Run)
  • Select target connection (exported by RSE)
  • Login to target through shell
  • Start gdbserver on target
  • Specify gdb remote connection and port in
    .gdbinit
  • Open Debug Perspective
  • Debug application

11
Working Examples
  • MontaVista DevRocket 5.0
  • Edit-Compile-Debug automation
  • Application Analysis
  • Memory Usage Analysis
  • Memory Leak Detection
  • Performance Profiling
  • System Analysis
  • Performance Profiling
  • Trace Visualization
  • Filesystem Creation

12
Future (interesting) Initiatives
  • DSDP Device Software Development Project
  • Umbrella project focused on improving embedded
    development
  • RTSC Realtime System Components
  • TI led project to support DSPs and 16-bit
    microcontrollers
  • TCF - Target Communications Framework
  • One protocol to rule them all
  • Debugging, monitoring, analysis, and test tools
  • DD - Device Debugging
  • Extensible Debugger Services Framework for better
    integration

13
Summary
  • Eclipse is quickly becoming the de-facto standard
    for embedded Linux Integrated Development
    Environments
  • CDT is mature enough (now) to support
    cross-compilation and debugging and to handle
    larger projects
  • RSE makes target management easy
  • Embedded focused features and integration is
    improving all the time
  • Its time to give it a try!
