Hi All,

I am going through the Quick_Start on the Acceleo wiki (sorry but it won't allow me to post links yet).

When I get to the point of Running the template. Run As -> 1 Launch Acceleo Application

I get the error Selection does not contain a main type (@main annotation is missing in your template)

My template looks like the one in the tutorial AFAICT. Except for the fact I had to remove the http from the URI in this message. It is there in the actual template.


[comment encoding = UTF-8 /]
[module generate('www.eclipse.org/uml2/3.0.0/UML')]


[template public generateElement(c : Class)]

[comment @main /]
[file (c.name,false,'UTF-8')]
Hello, [c.name /] World!
[/file]


[/template]



Any ideas?

--Tim

You must first Build the project. That is not automatically performed.

Hi,

By default, Eclipse builds automatically all projects, you should check if you haven't disabled it in the menu "project" -> "build automatically". Several features of the Acceleo tooling like real time errors detection or refactoring need that some/all Acceleo modules involved are built. If this options is deactivated I'll advise you to active it to turn it on for a better experience.

Regards,

Stephane Begaudeau, Obeo
