Hello,

I'm working with a simple grammar, and I have problems with the xTend code, in the doGenerate() method. This is the code ...
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.resource.Resource
import org.eclipse.xtext.generator.IGenerator
import org.eclipse.xtext.generator.IFileSystemAccess
...
class MyDslGenerator implements IGenerator {
	override void doGenerate(Resource res, IFileSystemAccess fsa) {
		fsa.generateFile('myfile.txt', res.compile);
	}
	
	def compile (Resource r) '''
	something
        '''


The error says "The method generateFile is undefined for the type MyDslGenerator"

I've compared this code with other examples I have, and I don't see any difference. Even more, I think this code worked some weeks ago, and now when I try to work with it again, that compilation error appears, and I don't know how to erase it.

Any clue would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Aran

Hello,

Before sending the file I've just tried a last test. I've renamed the file and I've created a new one with exactly the same content as the old one. And now .... it works!!!!!

I promise, I haven't changed any letter in the file, it's exactly the same content, and now there isn't any error. I can't believe it!!! how much time I lost yesterday!!!

Thank you for your interest.

Best regards,

Aran
