Execution order of different Validators [message #1770542] Mon, 14 August 2017 08:12 Go to next message

Hey guys,

we are running into the following issue currently:

We have several Validators which are used by the "basic" Validator of our DSL.
The validators are registered via @ComposedChecks annotation.

One validator (let's call it ResolverValidator later) does the type-resolving of the statements in our DSL.

Here is a little example to show what this validator does:


VAR_LIST
      someVariable : INT;
END_VAR_LIST

someVariable = 3;



When the ResolverValidator reaches the statement "someVarialbe = 3;", it stores the type for the whole statement, which is INT.

Of course this is done for all the files in a project.

Other validators then need the results of the ResolverValidator.

Now we come to our problem:
It is not ensured, that the ResolverValidator is processed BEFORE all the other validators.

So it can happen, that the other validators are called, and the statements are not resolved yet.


Is there a way to tell Xtext some "execution order" of the validators, or something like this?



Thank you very much for your help!

The approach itself is bogus, the validator must not depend on derived state. Use an IDerivedStateComputer and proper resource implementation for that.

Thanks for your fast answer.
This sounds good. We will try to change this, when we have the time for it...
