[edk2-devel] [edk2-InfSpecification PATCH] Document: Add new MODULE_TYPE HOST_APPLICATION

Posted by Xiaoyu Lu 19 weeks ago
BZ: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1952

Background:
Host-based Firmware Analyzer (HBFA) is a opensouce tools enables advanced
testing of UEFI and UEFI PI drivers in developer's OS environment. It
will generate OS application which can run directly in OS environment. But
there is no explicit MODULE_TYPE to indicate those modules.

Difference:
USER_DEFINED can be anyting, exe, bin, acpi table, etc.
HOST_APPLICATION identify it is exe file.

Add HOST_APPLICATION module type so it's easier to identify.

Re: [edk2-devel] [edk2-InfSpecification PATCH] Document: Add new MODULE_TYPE HOST_APPLICATION

Posted by Liming Gao 19 weeks ago
Xiaoyu:
  I would like to clarify that HOST_APPLICATION is for the execute file that can run in OS environment directly. It may be exe for Windows or be ELF for Linux. 
  And, this new type module will directly run in OS environment. So, they will not be built into BIOS image, and not be dispatched by PeiCore, DxeCore and SmmCore. Right?  If yes, they don't need [Depex] section.
  
  Last, can this new type be applied for EmulatorPkg\Win\Host and EmulatorPkg\Unix\Host module? 

Thanks
Liming

OK. I suggest to update commit message to describe this is the executable file instead of exe file.

OK. Please update the patch to describe there is no [Depex] section for this module type.

OK. Can you submit BZ for this update?
