In this chapter, we got down to the practical aspects of using eCos by running through some examples. We started with an overview of the eCos build process, which we use for generating eCos libraries or RedBoot images.
After covering the details of the build procedure, we began our examples with a build and install of the RedBoot ROM monitor. This provided us with a method for downloading our application code onto our target hardware, as well as providing GDB debugging support on the target.
We then proceeded to construct an eCos library from our configuration. The eCos library was used to build our application. Next, we focused on loading our application using first RedBoot directly and then using GDB for debugging.
We concluded ...
