Want to directly call generated parser [message #554905] Tue, 24 August 2010 16:41 Go to next message

I would like to call the generated parser generated by xtext. In the previous version I was able to use a special workflow file.
With the new mwe2 workflow format I am a bit lost.
I tried creating the parser directly:

fr = new FileReader("scripts/test1.mrk");

LexerProvider lp = new LexerProvider(InternalMarkerLexer.class);
mp.setLexerProvider(lp);

IParseResult ipr = mp.parse(fr);
fr.close();

But I do not know what to do with the TokenDefProvider and the above code bails out with a null pointer exception on that object.

Does somebody have a snippet or suggestion of how to call the generated parser from Java ?

Hi Rob,

why do you want to use the parser directly?

Regards,
Sebastian

Hi Sebastian,

I am using the abstract syntax tree generated by the parser in an interpreter. So it's a bit different from the usual usage of generating code.
In the ideal case I could just call some parse(filename) method and get the abstract syntax tree (EMF structure) back. Do you have a suggestion of how to achieve this with the new mve2 format or otherwise ?

Kind regards,
Rob

Hello Rob,

you can do this with emf means. see http://www.eclipse.org/Xtext/documentation/latest/xtext.html #processing_Xtext_models in the docs.

Christian

Hi Rob

I call the parser directly for JUnit tests.

I just set a breakpoint within my model access and followed the stack back.

Regards

Ed Willink

Never do this (and if don't tell others ;-))

Thanks guys,

With your info I could get it done. This is the snippet that does the trick:

Injector injector = new MarkerStandaloneSetup().createInjectorAndDoEMFRegistration() ;
ResourceSet set = injector.getInstance(ResourceSet.class);

URI uri = URI.createFileURI("scripts/test1.mrk");
Resource res = set.getResource(uri, true);
Object obj = res.getContents().get(0);
Model model = (Model) obj;

EList<Diagnostic> syntaxErrors = res.getErrors();


Kind regards,
Rob

And if you are interested in semantic errors (i.e. validation) as well,
you should use
((XtextResource)res).getResourceServiceProvider().getResourc eValidator().validate(res,.....)
