Embedded Linux Development using Eclipse

Embedded Linux Development using EclipseOver the past few years the open source Eclipse platform has become the de facto standard for Integrated Development Environments in the embedded software industry.  Embedded Linux vendors such as Monta Vista, Wind River and LynuxWorks have all adopted Eclipse as the basis for there respective tool chains.

In this practical, hands-on guide, Doug Abbott walks you through the steps required to successfully use the Eclipse platform for embedded software development with a specific emphasis on Linux.

Topics include:
  • Basic Eclipse operation
  • The C/C++ Development Toolkit
  • Debugging
  • Connecting to a remote target
  • Plug-ins
  • Source code control (CVS)
  • UML

By reading this book from start to finish, the embedded developer will gain a rare insight into everything Eclipse from its history, through a guided installation of Eclipse and CDT, and then into examples of new features, new projects, plug-ins and commercial offerings.  This will give the embedded developer a confidence and understanding to become very productive very quickly when using this new environment.
