hi
i would like to import an xtext grammar in another xtext grammar. so i wanted to know if it is possible to do that .
for example if i have a xtext grammar test.2 (containing the definition of Alice) and i want to use that Alice definition in another grammar call test.1, so i wanted to know if that is possible and if it is the case , how to do it?

best regards,
frank

You can base one grammar on another (just like the example use the
default terminals). It is described in the documentation.

Remember that the result is one grammar and one model - it is not a
composition of grammars, so mechanism works best when you want to reuse
a set of terminals, common data elements, and other items of "core" nature.
