Overview

The service provides basic run control operations for execution contexts on a target. Command and event parameters are encoded as zero terminated JSON strings.

The service uses standard format for error reports, see Error Report Format.

Commands

All run control commands are fully asynchronous, which means they never wait until context is in a particular state. For example, if single step command arrives when context is running, it does not wait until it stops, but returns an error. If a command successfully resumed a context, it does not wait until instruction pointer reaches desired destination – from client point of view the command execution ends right after context was resumed. Various stepping commands can leave a context running in a special mode, which is different from normal execution, for example, it can leave temporary breakpoints to suspend the context when control reaches a particular place. Such execution mode ends when the context is suspended, even if it was suspended for reasons unrelated to the command and intended destination was not reached. Client can know when and why a context is suspended by listening to events.

Get Context


C • <token> • RunControl • getContext • <string: context ID>

The command retrieves context properties for given context ID. Exact meaning of context depends on the target. A context can represent an execution thread, a process, an address space, etc. A context can belong to a parent context. Contexts hierarchy can be simple plain list or it can form a tree. It is up to target agent developers to choose layout that is most descriptive for a given target. Context IDs are valid across all services. In other words, all services access same hierarchy of contexts, with same IDs, however, each service accesses its own subset of context's attributes and functionality, which is relevant to that service.

Reply:


R • <token><error report><context data><context data>
    ⇒ null
    ⇒ <object: context properties>

Context data object is collection of context properties. It should, at least, contain member "ID" : <string>. It can also contain arbitrary number of components describing context properties and capabilities. Context data is supposed to be cached by clients and it is not expected to change frequently. It can include, for example, context name or ability to perform single step command on the context. But, it should not include volatile data like current PC or running/suspended state. Service sends contextChanged event to notify changes in context data.

Predefined run control context properties are:

Get Children


C • <token> • RunControl • getChildren • <string: parent context ID>

The command requests list of execution contexts available for run control commands.

Parent context ID can be null – to retrieve top level of the hierarchy, can be one of context IDs retrieved by previous getChildren commands, or it can be obtained from another service. Contexts hierarchy can be simple plain list or it can form a tree. It is up to target agent developers to choose layout that is most descriptive for a given target.

Reply:


R • <token><error report><array of context IDs><array of context IDs>
    ⇒ null
    ⇒ [ <context ID list> ]

<context ID list><string: context ID><context ID list> , <string: context ID>

Suspend


C • <token> • RunControl • suspend • <string: context ID>

The command suspends execution of given context. The command should fail if CanSuspend property of the context is false. If context's IsContainer = true, the command is propagated to context's children. Only contexts with HasState = true can be suspended.

Result message:


R • <token><error report>

Resume


C • <token> • RunControl • resume • <string: context ID><int: mode><int: count> •
C • <token> • RunControl • resume • <string: context ID><int: mode><int: count><object: parameters>

The command resumes execution of given context. The command should fail if CanResume property of the context is '0' for given mode. If context's IsContainer = true, the command is propagated to context's children. Only contexts with HasState = true can be resumed.

The command can have optional argument that contains set of resume parameters, for example stepping range definition.

Resume modes:

Resume parameters names:

Result message:


R • <token><error report>

Get State


C • <token> • RunControl • getState • <string: context ID>

The command retrieves current state of the context. The command should fail if HasState property of the context is false.

Result message:


R • <token><error report><boolean: suspended><int: PC><string: last state change reason><state data><state data>
    ⇒ null
    ⇒ <object: context state properties>

State change reason can be any text, but if it is one of predefined strings, a generic client might be able to handle it better. Predefined reasons are:

Context state properties can contain any data relevant to context state. Definition of state properties depends on a target. Predefined properties are:

Terminate


C • <token> • RunControl • terminate • <string: context ID>

The command terminates execution of given context. The command should fail if CanTerminate property of the context is false.

Result message:


R • <token><error report>

Detach


C • <token> • RunControl • detach • <string: context ID>

The command detaches debugger from the context. The command should fail if CanDetach property of the context is false.

Result message:


R • <token><error report>

Events

    ⇒ null
    ⇒ [ <context data list> ]

<context data list><object: context data><context data list> , <object: context data>
contextAdded
is sent when new contexts are created or attached for debugging. The message contains array of context data. Context data is same as returned by Get Context command.
contextChanged
is sent when context properties change. The message contains array of changed (new) context data. Context data is same as returned by Get Context command.
contextRemoved
is sent when context is removed - terminated or detached. The message contains array of context IDs.
contextSuspended
is sent when context is suspended. The message context ID contains context state data, same state data as returned by Get State command.
contextResumed
is sent when context is resumed. The message contains resumed context ID.
contextException
is sent when execution exception occurs in a context. The message contains context ID and a string that describes nature of the exception.
containerSuspended
is sent when target simultaneously suspends multiple threads in a container (process, core, etc.). The message contains context ID and context state data of a context responsible for the event. It can be container ID or any one of container children, for example, it can be thread that hit "suspend all" breakpoint. Message also contains full list of all contexts that were suspended simultaneously. No separate contextSuspened events are sent for contexts in the list. If client needs state data for those contexts, it should use Get State command.
containerResumed
is sent when target simultaneously resumes multiple threads in a container (process, core, etc.). Message contains full list of all contexts that were resumed simultaneously. No separate contextResumed events are sent for contexts in the list.
contextStateChanged
is sent when context state changes and the context is not and was not in suspended state. Changes to and from suspended state should be reported by other events: contextSuspended, contextResumed, containerSuspended, containerResumed.
