Preparing your target

The QNX development environment consists of a host and a target machine.

The host is where you write and build your code. This machine runs Windows, Linux, or Mac OS and contains the QNX SDP and IDE. The target is where you run, debug, and profile your applications. This machine runs QNX Neutrino and contains the embedded system you're designing (and all of the applications for that system).

Once the target is physically connected to the host, you must:
  1. Set up host-target communication, which can be based on an IP or serial connection.
  2. If you're using IP connectivity, create a target connection to tell the IDE where your applications will run.
