[Acceleo] *.emtl files missing when building updatesite [message #774722] Wed, 04 January 2012 13:30 Go to next message

Hi everyone,

I face the following problem:
When I build (or clean/rebuild) my plug-in project (with Acceleo nature and builder), the bin folder contains the *.emtl files as expected.

However, when I build the plug-in (via its feature) in an update site project, the created jar contains only *.mtl files (in addition to the Java classes) and the *.emtl files are missing.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Ingo

... by the way: The *.emtl files are missing, too, when I export only the plug-in via Export->Plug-ins/Deployable Features...

Hi

IMHO The Acceleo 3.2 builder is unuseable because it frequently doesn't
build (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=363651)

For the MDT/OCL code generator, I therefore use Acceleo 3.1.2, and once
I am happy with the *.emtl files, I copy them from the bin tree to a
secondary Java src2 tree, remove the Acceleo nature and builder and the
customCallbacks in build.properties. This ensures that only the Java
builder is in use and it copies the *.emtl from src2 to bin, just as the
Acceleo builder might have done if it executed. This approach also
allows/requires the *.emtl to be put under configuration management,
where using the ASCII form you can check on what is changing.

Regards

Ed Willink

Hey Ed,

thanks for your hint. I think 'll try that as workaround.
