18.3.1. Debugging Linux or Android applications using DS-5

Debugging Linux or Android applications requires a debug server such as gdbserver to be installed and running on the target. You can use a TCP or serial connection to the target running the OS, which can be either real target hardware or a software model.

DS-5 Debugger takes care of downloading and connecting to the debug server. Developers simply specify the platform and the IP address. This reduces a complex task using several applications and a terminal to a couple of steps in the IDE.
