Hi

starting from http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/897161/
I tried to setup the developer environment (I've been struggling with
that for some time ;)

Here's what I did, I'd like to know whether this is the correct method
(indeed http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/897161/ was not enough
for me):

- cloned http://git.eclipse.org/c/tmf/org.eclipse.xtext.git/
- import most of the projects (excluding documentation and maven)
- import the examples starting from the directory
/examples/org.eclipse.xtext.xtext.ui.examples/contents/ (otherwise the
plugin projects are not shown to be imported, since they are shadowed by
org.eclipse.xtext.xtext.ui.examples)
- set API baseline as detailed in
/org.eclipse.xtext.releng/api-baseline/readme.txt
- set target platform using
/org.eclipse.xtext.releng/target-platforms/developer-juno-3_8-emf-2_5.target
- cloned http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/xtend/org.eclipse.xtend.git
- import most of the projects in the plugins directory
- cloned http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/emf/org.eclipse.mwe.git
- import org.eclipse.emf.mwe2.language, org.eclipse.emf.mwe2.launch,
org.eclipse.emf.mwe2.lib

now I have no error :)

is this correct?

thanks in advance
cheers
Lorenzo

Yes, that seems to be correct. Thanks for the summary.

Hello Sebastian,
Hello Lorenzo,

Thank you for the tips!

I followed those steps. It was partially success, but I still have some major issues, that prevent me from using my new development environment. I used
- eclipse-SDK-4.2-Xtext-2.3.1-linux-gtk-x86_64

Here are some issues I had:

1. Along the way I had to install different plugins into my eclipse (like easymock or GMF). Is there a recommended (zipped) eclipse somewhere with all necessary plugins installed?

2. The last released Xtend (2.3.1) installed into the eclipse fails to compile some Xtend source files. The problem was always the casting. Xtend fails to use right (casted) variable after an instanceof check within the generated code. I had to fix it manually. So which Xtend/Xtext version should be used?

3. After altering the Xtext.ecore file and invoking "Generate Model Code" from the Xtext.genmodel I had a lot of errors. Here are some of those:
- Missing @since tag on getMyCoolNewAttribute()
- The import ecore cannot be resolved
- The method doSwitch(int, EObject) in the type XtextSwitch<Boolean> is not applicable for the arguments
(AbstractElement)

Thank you for the help!


Regards,
Boris
