What do you mean by "Sirius Text Editor"?
Queries specified in Viewpoint Specification Models (i.e. *.odesign
files) are stored as unstructured strings, and edited through a simple
text field in the VSM editor (with optional support for code completion).
It is only at runtime, when the evaluation of such an expression is
needed, that the strings are passed to the registered languages'
interpreters. You can define your own language using the
org.eclipse.sirius.common.expressionInterpreter extension point. A good
starting point to this how to do that is the
class, which gives raw access to Sirius variables through a simple
"var:foo" syntax. It is trivial enough that you can see how the
mechanics of plugging a custom interpreter works.
Support for code completion is provided through the
org.eclipse.sirius.common.proposalProvider extension point; see the
I'm not sure this answers your question, but that is how queries
currently work in Sirius: strings stored in VSMs, which are dispatched
at runtime to all the registered language interpreters, and the first
one which responds true to
is used to evaluate the expression.
Hope this helps.
