Xtext generates an editor that is based on the Eclipse framework, so the
answer is no, it will not function unless there is an Eclipse runtime.
(It does not have to be the full IDE though - see below).

You can create a product based on Eclipse that only includes what you
want (i.e. you do not need Java, and a bunch of other things).
puppetlabs / geppetto @ github is such a packaging of a product based on
Eclipse. You cannot however plug such a thing into another editor.
If you already have an application / editor, you can use Xtext to
generate the "headless" part, and then implement the editing support
If you are willing to open up an external executable to do the editing,
I suggest you go for the packaged product based on Eclipse. That will
save you a ton of time.
