i posted a message i the forum EDK and platform studio but i still have no solution or suggestion
So i want to run a dual communicating processor design. I refer to xapp966 tutorial.
I design the architecture containing two microblaze , shared memory , mailbox ... (atteched the MHS file)
then to understund how things go on i run an application of this reference (prodcon) , i build the projects and i impelment the design but the heyperteminal of the two processor not display anuthings.
in xmd console i run the follings commands :
1/connect mb mdm -debugdevice cpunr 1
2/connect mb mdm -debugdevice cpunr 2
3/debugconfig -reset_on_run disable
4/cd prodcon 0 " to run prodcon exp of the xapp tutorial"
5/ targets 0
6/ dow executable.elf
8/ cd ..
9/ cd prodcon1
10/ targets 1
11/ connect mdm -uart
12/terminal -jtag_uart_server 4321 ( then i open an hyperteminal and i connect through telnet tcp port)
please i will greatful for yours suggestions

Which device you are using ?
You can generate simple example system using bsb(Base System Builder Wizard) by selecting as dual processor system from the GUI..
Basically both of them shared a common interaface called mutex.

I am using EDK12.4
i genrated simple exemple using bsp . And the shared components is the mailbox. for this exemple the tutrial just run a simple hello world exemple.
Can this simple architecture run an application that cummunicate the two processor?

i am targeting a virtex 4 ,ml410
for the application i want to run image processing on a dual processor architectures;
from the test of a simple exemple that use the mailbox i find that this method of mailbox to pass message is not very efficient;
maybe a shared memory will be more suitable to comminicate the two processors
is it ?
