I wish to extend Java with some new features. Is there an existing standard-compliant implementation of Java in Xtext that I can use? I know of JaMoPP, but they're EMFText-based so I was wondering if there's such an implementation for Xtext.

Many thanks,
-Tomer

Tomer,

No, I don't think there is an Xtext grammar for Java. With Xtext it
would be better to take the kind of approach taken by Xtend, i.e.,
define a new language that looks must like Java, but has a syntax (that
reuses Xbase) over which you have complete control.
