DTSL is commonly used by DS-5 Debugger, both within the Eclipse environment and in the console version of the debugger. However, it can also be used in 'stand-alone' mode, completely outside of Eclipse. This allows you to use the DTSL API to take care of the target connection and configuration when writing your program. The rest of your program can concentrate on the main function of your application.
DTSL is mainly written in Java and Jython. There are therefore two kinds of stand-alone program, those written in Jython and those in Java. The DTSLExamples.zip file contains examples of both kinds of program, which you can look at to help you decide the best route for your application. The programs are easy to compare because they both do essentially the same things.
