Hi Community!

I am writing currently a transformation that outputs xml files. The output files are rather big and it would be nice to have the code formatted in some nice way.

I tried to follow the example from epsilon book - I have the following code in my .egl file:

var t1 = TemplateFactory.load("dni2qpme.egl");
t1.populate("doc", QPME!QpmeDocument.all.at(0));
//var formatter = new Native("org.eclipse.epsilon.egl.formatter.language.XmlFormatter");
//t1.setFormatter(formatter);
t1.process();
t1.generate('generated-network.xml');


When I uncomment the two lines related to formatter, the following error appears:
EXCEPTION: Type 'org.eclipse.epsilon.egl.formatter.language.XmlFormatter' not found


I run the project through an Ant workflow. It looks like this:


	
<project default="main">

 	<target name="loadMetaModels">
 		<epsilon.emf.register file="..."/>
                //many other similar lines
 	</target>
	<target name="loadModels">
 		
		<epsilon.emf.loadModel name="DNI"
                                       modelFile="network4.model"
                                       metamodelUri="some_uri"
                                       read="false" store="true"/>
 		 		
 		<epsilon.emf.loadModel name="QPME"
                                       modelFile="qpme_out.model" 
 				       metamodelUri="some_uri" 
 				       read="false" store="true"/>
		
 	</target>
	<target name="main" depends="loadMetaModels, loadModels">
		<epsilon.eol src="model4-qpn.eol">
			<model ref="DNI"/>
		</epsilon.eol>

		<epsilon.etl src="DNI2qpn.etl">
			<model ref="QPME"/>
			<model ref="DNI"/>
		</epsilon.etl>
	</target>
	
	<target name="m2t" depends="main">
		<epsilon.egl src="driver.egl">
			<model ref="QPME"/>
		</epsilon.egl>
	</target>
</project>


Any idea how to get the formatter working? I suppose, I need to install some additional jars or just point the path to them, but I thought that this functionality is built-in.

Hi Piotr,

Are you running your ANT workflow from within Eclipse or from the command line?

Cheers,
Dimitris

Hi Piotr,

I'm afraid that this appears to be a regression in the latest version of Epsilon. I was able to determine the cause and apply a fix fairly quickly, and I have started a discussion with the other developers to see whether we can build and release a new interim version for you that include this fix. Hopefully I will be able to do this tomorrow, so please stay tuned!

In the meantime, I've opened the following bug to cover the issue: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=422295

Cheers,
Louis.
