Hi all,
I would like to if it's possible to have multiple DSLs in the same Xtext project and how the various parts behave together.
will it use multiple injectors (one for each DSLs)?
will be the editor single? will be injected accordingly to the dsl file extension?
and could multiple editors created in such way appear in the same multi-page editor?

thank you in advance.

Think you need to describe in some more detail what it is you are trying
to achieve - what do you mean by "having multiple DSL's in the same
Xtext project"?

Do you mean different grammars? Different models?

Typically there are multiple injectors (one per "language"), but there
is nothing stopping you from doing advanced things with injectors if you
want to.

Hi Henrik,
exactly. I would have different grammars and different models; and of course different editors, that I can load in different pages of a multi-page editor (like Eclipse PDE) retrieving the right injector.

Is this possible?

Why is it important to you that they are in the same project / bunlde?
It just complicates things as you can not use the defaults. What are you
trying to achieve?

Oh,
well actually I have them in different projects. It's not a real problem. It can do just fine as it is now.

I was convinced that my approach - keep them separate - was not so good for delivery purposes, cause a lot of independent plugins were created, but sure it works.

Thanks
Ste
