Hi guys!

Is there a way to integrate the Editor generated by Xtext, with syntax highlighting and all features, with a Java application? Without using eclipse?

I was searching about this and found something about generate a Eclipse Product. But, what I have is a Java Application and my editor. I want to join them providing just the editor and a button to run the application.

Something like the image attached.




Thanks in advance.

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
yourself.

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.

Great answer, thank you very much.

I'll try to separate the concerns: editor and application. Also, I'll try export a Eclipse Product.
