For the File block, is there a way to specify an absolute path for the file being generated?
It seems that the paramter provided to the file block is always interpreted relative to the model file from which the code is being generated.

Alterantively, can I somehow set the reference path (from which all generated files are to be generated) to be other than the project within which the model is?

Hi,

The "root" folder Acceleo uses for the generation is the "Target" field of the Acceleo launch configuration.
If you're using an Acceleo UI Launcher, that "target" can be configured in the new Acceleo UI Launcher wizard.
If you already have your UI project and thus can't use the wizard, you'll find the line to change in the GenerateAction.java file, in the "run" operation (by default:
IContainer target = model.getProject().getFolder("src-gen");

By default, UI launcher projects take an IContainer, so it must be located in the workspace... but that is not a requirement for Acceleo and you can change the GenerateAll class to take an absolute file location instead.
You could also look at the generated java class beside your "main" module : the "targetFolder" field is the root of the relative paths for generated files.

Thanks Laurent!

I was trying to solve the problem within the acceleo templates. but, it seems more intuitive to fix the UI launcher instead.

It now works as expected.
