In reading over the various discussion's its not been clear to me what
exactly the proposals are, and how each fits in. In addition, while all
efforts have similar long term goals, I think it is useful to compare
based on more immediate expected deliverables - say over a 1-2 year time
With this in mind, I've tried to construct a table that gives a
relatively sharp distinction between choices. Of course reality is more
Frysk: the existing frysk project
?: Red Hat's new debugger as first proposed on the Frysk list
GDB++: An implementation of GDB in C++
GDB: Existing GDB.
A "?" indicates positions that seem to be evolving.
Frysk ? GDB++ GDB
focus: thread/proc C++ C++ ?
linux linux ? ?
user DESKTOP GDB GDB GDB
language Java C++ C++ C
Eclipse DSF Plug Plug? MI MI
Licence V2+ V3+ V3 V3
Owner RH/OR/IBM/+ RH? FSF FSF
Design Frysk Frysk? GDB GDB
Code Frysk frysk? GDB GDB
developers new RH GDB GDB
Tech Edge: strong O-O
focus/user: This is the groups intended user base and initial most
critical feature; and the likely source of users.
language: the project's principal language; all projects have plans to
hadd an interpreter for something like Python.
Eclipse: How the tool will integrate into eclipse; a plugin requires an
eclipse compatible licence (such as GPL+EXCEPT).
Licence: For instance, if GDB code is used, then the licence is pure V3.
If it is to be an ecplise plugin then pure V3 cannot be used.
Owner: Who will own the code base.
Design: Where the architecture comes from; its been suggested that
aspects of frysks architecture be transferred to gdb.
Code: Where the bulk of the initial code base comes from. For this new
debugger, while the design can be drawn from Frysk, the bulk of the
implementation would be new.
developers: from where developers will likely be attracted or drawn
tech edge: where the existing code base has what I think is a clear
existing technology advantage
