Unit Test for a Language which cross-references an Ecore model [message #1745193] Thu, 06 October 2016 08:58 Go to next message

Dear all,

given a xtext grammar which references an ecore model such as the following works just fine when running Eclipse.

Model:
	'MyModel' myModel=[ecore::EPackage] '{' ... '}'
;


However, how do I unit test such a language? I came across some previous threads which discussed the testing of languages with cross-references to other xtext languages.

There you had to create a ResourceSet and pass it to the ParseHelper<>.parse method. Unfortunately, that does not work for Ecore resources because they cannot be casted to XtextResources and therefore "resource.contents.head.assertNoIssues" results in a ClassCastException: "org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi.impl.EcoreResourceFactoryImpl$1 cannot be cast to org.eclipse.xtext.resource.XtextResource".

Is there another way to create a ResourceSet with an Ecore model?

class LanguageParsingTest {

	@Inject extension ParseHelper<MyModel> 
	@Inject extension ValidationTestHelper

	@Inject
	Provider<XtextResourceSet> resourceSetProvider;
	
	@Test
	def void testParsing() {
		val fooPackage = EcoreFactory::eINSTANCE.createEPackage
		fooPackage.name = "foo"
		fooPackage.nsPrefix ="foo"
		fooPackage.nsURI = "http://foo"

		val resourceSet = resourceSetProvider.get
		val resource = resourceSet.createResource(URI.createURI("foo.ecore"))
		resource.contents.add(fooPackage)
		resource.save(null)

		resourceSet.getPackageRegistry().put(fooPackage.getNsURI(), fooPackage);
		resource.load(null);

		resource.contents.head.assertNoIssues

		val model = '''MyModel foo { }'''.parse(resourceSet)
		model.assertNotNull
		model.assertNoErrors	
	}
}


Thank you very much for your help!

i dont know of a "super duper easy one method make me happy way" that you might be looking for,
although one could surely optimize / restructure etc what you are doing.
(e.g. by having a parse method that takes both the ecore and the text)

of regarding your error in the first place.
of course you could try to make places like org.eclipse.xtext.testing.validation.ValidationTestHelper.validate(Resource) and maybe others more robust.
can you elaborate where the classcast exception actually happens?

Thanks for your reply Christian!

The exception is indeed thrown by ValidationTestHelper.validate(Resource) as the EMF resource is casted to a XtextResource.

However, I have to admit that I made a small mistake when explaining my problem. Please ignore the 'head.assertNoIssues line, .parse(resourceSet)' line for a second. The 'assertNoErrors' in the last line also invokes the ValidationTestHelper.validate method. The result is "[ERROR:Couldn't resolve reference to EPackage 'foo'." When debugging that error, it seems that it fails to lazy load the ecore resource even though I didn't figure out the reason why it fails.

That's why I was wondering if there is another way to create a ResourceSet with an Ecore model?

do you have org.eclipse.xtext.ecore added to the test project. do you call ecoreSupport somewhere? eg.


@RunWith(XtextRunner)
@InjectWith(ExtendedMyDslInjectorProvider)
class DemoTest {

@Inject extension ParseHelper<Model>
@Inject extension ValidationTestHelper

@Inject
Provider<XtextResourceSet> resourceSetProvider;

@Test
def void testParsing() {
val fooPackage = EcoreFactory::eINSTANCE.createEPackage
fooPackage.name = "foo"
fooPackage.nsPrefix ="foo"
fooPackage.nsURI = "http://foo"
val resourceSet = resourceSetProvider.get
val resource = resourceSet.createResource(URI.createURI("foo.ecore"))
resource.contents.add(fooPackage)
val model = '''MyModel foo { }'''.parse(resourceSet)
model.assertNotNull
model.assertNoErrors
}

}

class ExtendedMyDslInjectorProvider extends MyDslInjectorProvider {

override protected internalCreateInjector() {
return new MyDslStandaloneSetup() {

override register(Injector injector) {
EcoreSupportStandaloneSetup.setup
super.register(injector)
}

}.createInjectorAndDoEMFRegistration();
}

}

The EcoreSupport was missing. Thank you very much!
