Using BSPs in the IDE

Before working with a BSP in the IDE, you must first import it. When you import the BSP source, the IDE creates a System Builder project.

To import the BSP source code:

  1. Select File > Import.
  2. Expand the QNX folder.
  3. Select QNX Board Support Package from the list. Click Next.
  4. In the Select the package to import dialog, click Select Package, and then choose the BSP archive using the file browser.
  5. Choose the BSP you want. You'll see a description of it.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Uncheck the entries you don't want imported. (By default all the entries are selected.)
  8. Click Next.
  9. Select a working set. Default names are provided for the Working Set Name and the Project Name Prefix that you can override if you choose.
  10. Click Finish. All the projects will be created and the source brought from the archive. You'll then be asked if you want to build all the projects you've imported.

    If you answer Yes, the IDE will start the build process. If you decide to build at a later time, you can do a Rebuild All from the main Project menu when you're ready to build.

    When you import a QNX BSP, the IDE opens the QNX BSP Perspective. This perspective combines the minimum elements from the C\C++ Development Perspective and the System Builder Perspective.

    Note: For more information, see the IDE User's Guide in your documentation set. (Within the IDE itself, go to: Help > Help Contents > QNX Documentation Roadmap).
