Convenient Eclipse plug-in for all Universal Debug Engine supported microcontroller architectures


A special plug-in, now provided with the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) 2.6 from pls Programmierbare Logik & Systeme at no extra cost, enables a separate debug perspective for Eclipse-based platforms. The tool, offered as a feature installation package, offers in contrast to other conventional market solutions the advantage that the complete functionality of the UDE as cross debugger under Eclipse is retained without having to compromise. It can be simply installed with Eclipse’s own mechanism. Operation in “RCP stand-alone application mode” is also possible.
In order to ensure maintaining the range of functions, the UDE’s own workspace file, a location for storing configuration settings of the debugger, is fully integrated in the Eclipse workspace. Subsequently, a debug session can be defined simply as Eclipse launch configuration and started from the C/C++ editor. Display of the instruction pointer is carried out synchronously in all perspectives. Breakpoints can be set both in the C/C++ editor and by debugger-specific functions. Their display is also synchronous. Furthermore, C/C++ editors can also be used in the UDE Eclipse perspective.
