Debug without JTAG adapter, is it possible

Postby Zeni241 » Thu Sep 19, 2019 5:08 am

Hi
I have been using terminal for ESP32 development so far without any problem. Now I am starting to use Eclipse just because of debugging option in it.
I don't have JTAG adapter. Is there any possibility I can use USB connection for debugging? Is it possible in VisualGDB and VS?
I just want to catch any syntax error and see values of variables at break points.

Theoretically, the hardware could allow you to do live debugging with gdbstub, but at the moment, no, it is not possible.

Thanks ESP_Sprite, so as I guessed there is no easy way out (lazy me) :lol: . Thus I have already ordered some JTAG connectors.

OpenOCD debuggger is best option for that.
