RVDS40Pro vs RVCT

Hi
can any one suggests the marits and demerits of using RVCT as against RVDS. ie what additional capcabilities we get with RVDS.
Budget is a constrain so is it really worth while to go for complete development suite just for the IDE? As of now we are using VS2005 as the IDE and we intends to develop small mobile apps based on BREW 3.1.4/3.1.5

Was using gcc, but we need floating point support so I am looking at RVCT as well, but it's really expensive! What is the cheapest way to get just the ARM compiler? Thanks!

Hi Vivek
I am developing an application using BREW 3.1.5, for IDE I too am using the VS2005 and for building the MOD - I am using the GCC ARM cross compiler.
Budget was a constraint for us too and tat's why went for GCC ARM compiler.
Have no idea of RVST or RVDS escept that too could be used to build the MOD :).
The only problem you would face is - certain functionalities might not be supported by GCC for which I wrote my own logic, got it passed through GCC.
Ex - Floating point operations.
For bryanwang: I wrote my own logic for the floating point operations converting them into integers and then doing the calculation - even you could do the same.

Thnx akshay. got your point.
Actually we thought we would go the ARM way. But 'm slightly confused about the whole development suite (RVDS).
The issue is whether the its really worth while to go for development suite or to go for the compiler alone (RVCT)

I can tell you this much.
There is ZERO support from ARM if you buy RVCT. The only support you have is right here in the forums.
We had a C++ issue and ARM would NOT give up any help whatsoever.
I wish I could sell a product and not offer any service for it.
That way I could just tell people it worked fine and leave it at that.
