A comment does not have a representation in the semantic model, |
therefore it cannot be added to the semantic model.
Usually Xtext stores the textual representation in a parallel model (the
node model), but this one does not exist if you create the resource as a
semantic EMF model only. The node model is only created by the parser
which you don't use in your scenario at all.
1) Implement a post processor, inserting the comments into the saved
models (reopen as text files, add comment, save)
2) Instead of calling Resource.save(Map<?,?>) call
Resource.save(OutputStream, Map<?,?>) and write the comment into the
output stream before.
3) Serialize the semantic model, parse the resulting string again and
then add the comment textually, e.g. using XtextResource.update(0,0, "//
3) Write and bind your own XtextResource or ISerializer and hook into
the doSave or serialize methods.
