Hello everyone,

I'm developing a code generator using Acceleo and now I was wondering how can I generate a "ready to use or import" Eclipse Project, more precisely, my goal is to generate an Android Project.
For now I generate all the source code and the folder hierarchy, but I would like to know how I can generate a full project with information such as the referenced libraries.

Thank you very much!

In my UML to Java code generator, I not only generate a Java Eclipse projet but I also import it in the workspace and format its source code automatically. You can have a look at the Java services used here to create a project from scratch and to import it and its call there. You could also generate all the necessary files to have an Eclipse project (.project, .classpath for a Java project, etc...) and then import it later. I am also using this solution with the modules in this package.

This generator also comes with properties attached to the model instead of the old "properties files" mechanism which is more powerful since you have more than strings (look for UML2JavaConfigurationHolder) and also a dedicated launch configuration in the ui plug-in that you can save on the file system. If you are looking for a source of inspiration, I'm pretty sure that you can find everything you need here.

The source code is available on Github under the Eclipse Public License (just like Acceleo and Eclipse itself).
