Xtend (and Xpand) have four built-in datatypes, String being one of |
them. In the metamodel you can map implementation-specific datatypes to
those built-in types. For instance the EmfRegistryMetamodel maps
ecore::EString to the builtin String, the UML2 meta model maps
uml2::String to it.
You'll have to do the same if you really need this custom String.
