as this question is related to m2t I include the right newsgroup in this
reply. allElements() was a serious performance trap in oAW 4.3.1 as it
was kind of easy to use in combination with typeSelect - the same way
you describe it - but used to collection everthing to select a small
number of objects afterwards. That is basically a bad idea from the
complexity point of view. That's why there is no such function in Xtext.
You may want to write it on your own with the help of
EcoreUtil.getAllContents(ResourceSet). You can filter the elements with
Google Collection API. Have a look for Iterables.filter(Iterable,
Class). You'll find an example if you search the m2t newsgroup for
Literally speaking it is almost ever a better idea to navigate the tree
directly and collect only the interesting objects in the first place.
Please consider to rewrite your checks to be more straight forward
intead of using the generic allElements-approach.
