=='''How to develop with Yocto Project SDK'''==
'''What is Yocto Project SDK '''==
Yocto Project offers a set of tools for developers to create applications (that will run in Yocto created Linux Distributions ) from powerful Host machines. This is also called cross compiling. Yocto Project SDK allows developers to cross compile, debug, and test applications. In fact Yocto Project SDK provides:
* <span class="emphasis">''Cross-Development Toolchain''</span>: This toolchain contains a compiler, debugger, and various miscellaneous tools. * <span class="emphasis">''Libraries, Headers, and Symbols''</span>: The libraries, headers, and symbols are specific to the image (i.e. they match the image). * <span class="emphasis">''Environment Setup Script''</span>: This <code class="filename">*.sh</code> file, once run, sets up the cross-development environment by defining variables and preparing for SDK use.
The SDK is installed on any machine and can be used to develop applications, images, and kernels. An SDK can even be used by a QA Engineer or Release Engineer. The fundamental concept is that the machine that has the SDK installed does not have to be associated with the machine that has the Yocto Project installed.
Normally Target systems specifications are quite restricted, specifically in embedded target systems. It is convenient for the developer, in order to save time, to develop, compile and test their applications on their host platform which is usually a powerful machine. This is the basic of the cross compiling process. Later an emulator is used to test the application.
