Creating a new Model Connection

Like DS-5, Arm Development Studio provides a method to connect to and debug models.  Arm Development Studio adds a new Model Connection wizard to help you create connections to models. This activity describes how to connect to a model that is shipped with Arm Development Studio, using the new Model Connection wizard. Adding a new model configuration using the same wizard is described later.

Establish a Model Connection:

  1. Click the New Debug Connection icon in the Debug Control view, in the View Menu listing of the Debug Control view, or at the top of the Development Studio perspective and select Model Connection.
    Note: The New Debug Connection icon only appears in the Debug Control view if no launch configurations have been used.



    The Model Connection wizard can also be opened by selecting File > New > Model Connection.
  2. Enter a connection name in the Debug connection name field.
    Note: A new Model connection can be associated with an existing project by ticking Associate debug connection with an existing project and selecting a project from the list provided.  This option is not used in this activity.

  3. Click Next.
  4. Select a model to connect to from the available list or click Add a new model... to add a new model configuration to Arm Development Studio.

    Adding a new model configuration is described later.
  5. Click Finish.

The Arm Development Studio Edit Configuration dialog has the same function as the DS-5 Debug Configurations view. The main difference is that the Arm Development Studio Edit Configuration view only shows the configuration details for the selected model under the Connection Select target field.


The remaining steps to establish the Model Connection are the same as they are in DS-5.

The created launch configuration appears in the Project Explorer view.
