12.13.4. Working with auto-projects

Any image that you load to a debug target must be accompanied by a project to save the image-related settings. If you open a user-defined project and this binds to the connection then this can be used to load the associated image. If you load an image directly, RealView Debugger searches for a saved auto-project file in the same location. If a saved file does not exist then RealView Debugger creates an in-memory auto-project to use in this session. You can save this file for later use.

If you load multiple images to the target processor, the Process Control pane shows entries for the images and the auto-projects used to hold image-related settings, see Working with multiple images for details on loading two images.

This means that you can work with multiple auto-projects or mix auto-projects and user-defined projects in the same session:

RealView Debugger enables you to view a combination of image details, auto-projects and user-defined projects in the Process Control pane, shown in Figure 12.21.

However, the Project Control dialog box, shown in Figure 12.22, indicates that there are two more user-defined projects open in this session.
