javaMIPS provides a complete MIPS Assembler development and debugging environment. It is implemented as a set of three plugins to the Eclipse IDE.

What does it look like
In the following screenshot you can see an overview over the main views of javaMIPS:
- The MIPS Editor supports the usual features like syntax highlighting, context sensitive (syntactical and semantic) code completion, MIPS instruction documentation, ...
- The Instructions View provides a grouped list of MIPS instructions. On mouse hover, the documentation of the corresponding instruction is shown.
- During a run of a MIPS application, The Registers View shows the current content of the processor registers. Additionally the registers that changed in the last step of execution are highlighted.
- The MIPS Console is responsible for output and user input. Additionally it acts as the interface to the debugger and provides buttons to control execution.
- The Disassembly and Data Segment Views show the generated machine code of the complete project. Upon assembly load or execution, every MIPS file in a project is taken and linked together to one big assembly file. The content of this is shown in these two views.
- Breakpoints are supported in two different ways: Setting breakpoints as usual by double clicking to the editor ruler. And inserting the special brk instruction.
- Additionally the plugins provide predefined Code Templates to ease the use of complex instructions like for example syscalls.
