Pawel Piech

François Chouinard

Debugger Services Framework (DSF) developed by DSDP/Device Debugging project is an API for integrating a debugger with Eclipse's standard debugger views. It is an alternative to Platform's standard debug model and it leverages debugger views' flexible hierarchy API which was introduced in Eclipse 3.2. The main design goal of DSF is to allow increased flexibility and performance in a debugger integration.

In the first part of this tutorial, users will learn the basic concepts and patterns used by DSF including:

In the second part, users will walk through the steps of implementing an example debugger using the DSF, which is the same example PDA debugger used in Debug Platform tutorials. Users will perform coding exercises implementing various features of the debugger.

This tutorial builds on APIs and concepts in Debug Platform so familiarity with Debug Platform will be helpful. DSF uses Java 5 language features including generics and the concurrency package, familiarity with these features would also be helpful.

Pawel is the project Manager for the Device Debugging Project and the architect of the Debugger Services Framework (DSF). At Wind River Systems he has been developing an Eclipse-based debugger over the last four years.

François is a software designer for Ericsson and works on high-performance telecom simulators. He is a committer for the DSDP/DSF project.

Current committer/developer for DSDP/DSF.
