Hi,

I am working on an academic project to develop a DSL for Android GUI (ofcourse not full fledge GUI generation). I am intended to use xtext to develop DSL and xpand or acceleo for code generation. My questions are:

1) As in Android applications there are three main files, Activity.java, main.xml, and manifest.xml so do I need to generate all these three files or only generation of Activity.java will serve the purpose of fully-executable code generation.

2) is there any tutorial textual/video that is helpful for beginners ?

Hi Muhammad,

In my opinion, you should generate all those files in order to maintain the cohesion of your generated application. If you are looking for resources for an Android generator with Acceleo, you can follow the Android tutorial available here
You can also have a look at the videos from the Topcased Days presentation of Acceleo in order to see how Acceleo can be used for Android application generation. those videos are available here.

Hi Stephane,

Thanks for replying. In these videos Acceleo is used with ecore model. Is there an example that Acceleo is used with xtext (actually I dont know how to convert xtext meta model to ecore meta model, I am searching for it).

Thank you

I got answer to my own question. ecore is generated as part of xtext artifacts. Thanks
