Hi All,

I am experiencing a very strange error in the MyLang.xtext file where all of a sudden the whole terminals are marked as errors (underlined with red zigzag) and giving an error : cannot create datatype <terminal rule name>

I tried to close eclipse several times, generate the artifacts (gave an error and could not be generated) and close and reopen the file but it gave me the same error.

I am quite sure that there isn't typo or missing ; or : because the same file (EXACTLY THE SAME) was working fine yesterday and generating its artifacts so good

Any clue?

Hi you have a package import for the ecore package? If not add it

Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?
