Differences in A2L Handling between CANape and CANoe . XCP
There are differences between CANape and CANoe Option XCP regarding the A2L handling:
CANoe does not allow editing of A2L files. Therefore most of the communication settings in A2L file need to match the parameters of the ECU. On the other hand, CANape can work with incomplete files and allows saving of A2L files. It uses the communication to the ECU to update incomplete or incorrect settings. This means (almost) any A2L file can be used in CANape while CANoe.XCP requires a complete and tested file.
The easiest way is to test the communication via CANape. Then apply the changes in the A2L. Thus, the communication settings will be rewritten in the A2L. The new A2L can be used in CANoe.XCP.
In CANape under Device | Configuration | Database | Expert settings,
set the entry SAVE_ORIGINAL_IF_DATA to use current driver data
Save the A2L file when you close the project. The communication settings will be updated and the file can be used in CANoe.
