View Full Version : Creating Build and Debug environment in Desktop application using Qt!

15th February 2011, 13:40

I am willing to create a complete "build and debug environment for C/C++ application" in Qt desktop application. How can i do that??

Like Eclipse does Qt has any pre-built plug-in/lib, which can be directly used by integrating it with my application? :confused:

If not what are the other ways to accomplish the same??

Thanks in advance for your help.

You can download Qt SDK from here (http://qt.nokia.com/downloads) (the SDK come with Qt 4.7.0)

Or try Qt SDK tech preview, from here (http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2011/01/20/qt-sdk-1-1-technology-preview-released/) (this includes Qt 4.7.1 for desktop and mobile)

Or you can download the sources and build with what compiler you want, but the easiest for you is to get the SDK, since it installs everything.

The integration to Visual Studio or Eclipse makes sense only if you know the environment very well, else just use Qt Creator.

But i don't want to compile and debug Qt application developed my me..

I would like to re- frame my question,
I have created a Desktop application using Qt. Which aims at providing an environment using which the user can create, compile and debug applications written in C/C++..
How can i do that??

Continuing with same aim, i would like to know can I import or integrate the debug framework provided in the Qt Creator in my application??
Or is there is a way to use of its part to create similar framework?

There are a few programmers that have been working in that kind of application, maybe you should check those applications. One is QDevelop, written by Jean-Luc Biord (jl.biorf@free.fr) et al. You can take a look at the open source here. (http://qdevelop.org) Of course QCreate is another one, and Monkey Studio (http://www.monkeystudio.org) could be another possibility.

Upss! Developer for Monkey Studio is Azevedo Filipe (pasnox@gmail.com).

Sorry Aditya, that was the link shown in my version. After a search, I get the new link for you: look here (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Programming/Other-Programming-Files/QDevelop.shtml)...
