Hey folks,

I need a way to invoke my Xtext parser for an extensionless file format which is distributed over a series of folders. These folders also contain files I do not want to parse:

/project/root/root
/project/subfolder/data/foo
/project/subfolder/data/bar  <-- not needed
/project/another_subfolder/blah
/project/another_subfolder/blubb <-- not needed


In this example, I want to read the files 'root', 'foo' and 'blah'

I cannot create a new Xtext-project without specifying a file extension. Is there a workaround for such a situation?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Content types are made for this. But be warned they might slow down the incremental builder.

See this post on stackoverflow:
