Hi,

When I am copying 100 my dsl files in a project, xtext runtime application taking so much time to copying the dsl files in a directory. Why?

I assume that, while copying it is parsing the code inside dsl file. Is there any way to speed up the copying?

You should use a profiler to see what happens.
Is it better is you disable auto build before copying

this looks like your parser is running amok (e.g. ragarding all the backtracking stuff you may have ...)

I set backtrack=true in Workflow. So it is causing this hanging right? Now what should I do now to get rid of it without removing backtrack=true.

you cannot. if xtext parsing / indexing takes too long it takes to long. you can use a profiler to find out which part of it but ...


what happens if you read the 100 files with a java main ?

Hi,

I understood the problem Automatic Build does run the lexer and Antler parser on the dsl files in the src directory, that needs to be synchronized with the mechanism that kicks off the Automatic Build procedure. But I didn't find the solution.

Any idea on this?

Hi

Does the Xtext auto-build actually do anything for you? If not, then
there is a very simple solution; remove the Xtext nature.

From my observations, the Xtext nature/builder contributes to a variety
of time wasting activities, so I only use it in:
- plugins with a *.xtext file
- plugins with a *.xtend file
- plugins with a *.mwe2 file
I endeavour to keep those plugins simple. In partcular, I do not use the
Xtext nature on plugins with a *.ecore file and I isolate build *.mwe2's
from *.xtext.

Regards

Ed Willink

Hi Ed Willink,

You mean:
right click on xtext project -> configure -> unconfigure xtext?

If not, could you please tell me how to disable xtext nature?

but as set before: you should take care why xtext takes so long to parse YOUR files. they will have to be parsed anyway right? why you you want to use xtext if not.

So if I unconfigure xtext nature it completely removes parsing the mydsl code?

Hi

Probably. But last time I looked it was Project->Configure->Remove Xtext
Nature. I'm not sure how significant the changed spelling is.

Hi

With an Xtext nature, many DSL files are parsed every time the
incremental builder gets tickled. If many plugins have Xtext natures
they can form vicious cycles of rebuilds that take a long time to
stabilize; the Xtext builder has/had at least one bad platform builder
interaction. https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=412305,
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=412634

Without an Xtext nature, a DSL file is parsed every time a DSL consumer
wants it. Much faster if the consumption is occasional and disciplined.
Much slower if the consumption relies on a tool that is unaware of
producer-consumer relationships such as the Xtext index. (Lack of
awareness forces the just-in-case reparse of many-producers for
all-consumers for almost any change.)

Regards

Ed Willink

If I remove xtext project nature it is parsing my code without any problem. But when every I am opening dsl file it is asking "Do you want to convert MyProject to Xtext Project?" Yes/No. I selected NO. But editor parsing my code. How to disable that message?

No. It is not calling. It is showing a warning in my code like Discouraged access: The type NatureAddingEditorCallback is not accessible due to restriction on required project com.prolifics.jpl.JPLEditor.ui.

id have expected something like

override bindIXtextEditorCallback() {
JPLEditorOnSave
}

}

or you split up the two callbacks

Hi Christian,

Even I don't need to extend NatureAddingEditorCallback. (1) solves the complete problem. But what is the difference between below snippets (1) and (2)? (1) is my code and (2) is your code.

(1)
override bindIXtextEditorCallback() {
JPLEditorOnSave
}

(2)
def configureMyXtextEditorCallback(Binder binder) {
binder.bind(IXtextEditorCallback).annotatedWith(Names.named("JPLEditorOnSave")).to(JPLEditorOnSave);
}

You can have n callbacks with 1 you change the default with 2 you Register a 2nd callback
