Currently, eclipse automatically generates the code from xcore when you save your changes. I have automated the xtext and xtend part of my project using ANT. And I want to add the xcore to jave generation in my ANT task too.

Unfortunately, I haven't found any reference on generating xcore to java from ANT so I guess it's not possible? So I am hoping I can add it to my MWE workflow instead. How can I add it to my workflow?

I have written a post on how to integrate Xcore in a Gradle build: https://blogs.itemis.com/en/using-xtext-with-xcore-and-gradle

For Ant there is no first-level support, but you could also just call Gradle or Maven from Ant.

Maven should be okay but I am not very familiar with it. Are there any working examples that I can look into it?
