Can xtext support two different grammars in one single eclipse application?
For example:
1) I create a project and write a grammar in it (say java style grammar)
2) I create another sub project and write a grammar in it (say python style grammar)
3) Can I invoke a single eclipse application with two editor windows that will support the two separate grammars? would it be by a file name (.java/.python), or would it be by something else?

Thank you for your help

Danny,

Yes of course that works. You can register by file extension (but also
by content type if several different types of content have the same file
extension).

It seems unlikely you'd need that and the answer is complex. So best to
pick a unique extension, and worry about such complexities later rather
than up front.

So as long as a I create to xtext files with different extensions, all should be well?
