There is no step... simple load the file into an EMF resource set and
the parser will be triggered, parse, link, etc. and give you the model
Also, other models can simply refer to model elements in the created
model without knowing that it is in fact a text based DSL.
How you do this differs slightly depending on if you are running inside
the IDE (while editing etc.) or if you want some stand alone tool that
performs the reading.
If you want to read the model for purpose of "building", the best way is
to hook into the Xtext builder framework - thus getting a callback when
things change, simply read the model and do whatever you want.
Need to know a bit more about what you want to do in order to be more
Hope this helps along the way.
