Xpand file error? [message #525159] Thu, 04 June 2009 18:51 Go to next message

Hi

I'm using Amalgam at the moment.

I've created a DSL project, generated model and diagram code etc.

I've also used the GMF-XPand wizard to create an xpand file in templates

If I use ctrl-space I can correctly see a list of selectable dsl's for
me to import. If I pick them I get something like <<IMPORT contract>>,
<<IMPORT uml>> etc which is what I expect. (I also have Xpand Nature
turned on by the way.) The "URI" import doesn't seem to be supported
here.

I can then build up my template as expected by using ctrl-space etc.
But when I save I get a red error flag against each import statement
despite them appearing to be working. In my dependencies I have the
following


Require-Bundle: org.eclipse.core.runtime,
org.eclipse.emf.ecore;visibility:=reexport,
org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi;visibility:=reexport,
org.eclipse.uml2.uml;visibility:=reexport,
org.eclipse.xpand;bundle-version="0.7.0",
org.eclipse.xtend;bundle-version="0.7.0",
org.eclipse.xtend.typesystem.emf;bundle-version="0.7.0",
org.eclipse.emf.mwe.core;bundle-version="0.7.0"
Bundle-ActivationPolicy: lazy

Any ideas please? is this a symptom of some other error?
(DSL toolkit Build id: 20081128-0606)

Also the workflow wizard just seems to create an empty text file
with no context editing support, is this really all I should get?

regards
Steve

I'm afraid the errors are "normal" for this build, using the original Xpand
(which doesn't support URI-based imports, btw). The GMF-based Xpand has
much improved the situation in the current release train.

The workflow file wizard provides no default content. As both the newer
GMF-based Xpand and QVT both support Ant invocation, there is little need
for these files when using the current release train.

Sorry for the bad news.

Best,
Rich

Hi Rich

Just tried 1.0M7

I noticed when I imported my projects from 20081128-0606 that the
chevrons had changed to ' and a weird degree character (I'm on OS X).
This is the same if I open the file in textedit, but I can cut and paste
chevrons OK from the older dsltk.

The URL works but the older format doesn't. Also the xpand nature is no
longer there, I downloaded the examples from the welcome screen for good
measure. On both my templates and the examples, ctrl-space doesn't seem
to work. Am I missing something?

If I wish to use xpand code generation (for demo purposes - just looking
for something basic an easy at the moment that I can run from a plugin
or rcp) - what would you recommend as a build/plugin set?


regards
Steve

Posting here, in addition to direct email:

Try changing the encoding on the files to ISO-8859-1.

Also, you¹ll need to make sure the new builder is used. You should add this
in your .project file (remove any other xpand builder):

<buildCommand>
<name>org.eclipse.gmf.xpand.xpandBuilder</name>
<arguments>
</arguments>
</buildCommand>

Finally, the newer Xpand uses an .xpand-root file in the project directory
to point at template locations. It¹s a simple file that should only contain
a single entry for most projects, e.g. Œtemplates¹ (if there is a directory
named Œtemplates¹ in your project where you keep your xpt files).

HTH,
Rich

Just found the answer to one issue ;-)

I had put org.eclipse.gmf.xpand into my dependencies already.

I typed xpand into Help to see what it said, help pointed to new xpand
wizard so I ran it to create a new template and it seemed to kick start
the context help!

Steve

Another thing to point out is that the newer Xpand uses OCL/QVTO as the
expression/query language. So, you will need to correct errors you may now
see in your templates where the legacy expression language and Xtend
language was used.

I'm afraid the errors are "normal" for this build, using the original Xpand
(which doesn't support URI-based imports, btw). The GMF-based Xpand has
much improved the situation in the current release train.

The workflow file wizard provides no default content. As both the newer

for these files when using the current release train.

Sorry for the bad news.

Hi Rich

Just tried 1.0M7

I noticed when I imported my projects from 20081128-0606 that the
chevrons had changed to ' and a weird degree character (I'm on OS X).
This is the same if I open the file in textedit, but I can cut and paste
chevrons OK from the older dsltk.

The URL works but the older format doesn't. Also the xpand nature is no
longer there, I downloaded the examples from the welcome screen for good
measure. On both my templates and the examples, ctrl-space doesn't seem
to work. Am I missing something?

If I wish to use xpand code generation (for demo purposes - just looking
for something basic an easy at the moment that I can run from a plugin
or rcp) - what would you recommend as a build/plugin set?


regards
Steve

Posting here, in addition to direct email:

Try changing the encoding on the files to ISO-8859-1.

Also, you¹ll need to make sure the new builder is used. You should add this
in your .project file (remove any other xpand builder):

<buildCommand>
<name>org.eclipse.gmf.xpand.xpandBuilder</name>
<arguments>
</arguments>
</buildCommand>

Finally, the newer Xpand uses an .xpand-root file in the project directory
to point at template locations. It¹s a simple file that should only contain
a single entry for most projects, e.g. Œtemplates¹ (if there is a directory
named Œtemplates¹ in your project where you keep your xpt files).

HTH,
Rich

Just found the answer to one issue ;-)

I had put org.eclipse.gmf.xpand into my dependencies already.

I typed xpand into Help to see what it said, help pointed to new xpand
wizard so I ran it to create a new template and it seemed to kick start
the context help!

regards
Steve

Another thing to point out is that the newer Xpand uses OCL/QVTO as the
expression/query language. So, you will need to correct errors you may now
see in your templates where the legacy expression language and Xtend
language was used.
