I would like to ask how we can do visualization in Xtext. I am writing grammar for ABS language to create its plugin for eclipse. ABS contains features and deltas. I would like to do for example if I click on features it will show me the list of Deltas and If I click on Deltas it will show the list of features ?

There are different visualization frameworks that you could consider.
- KLighD
- Graphviz
- FXDiagram
- Eclipse Layout Kernel
to name a few.

You may look at tutorials for them and open source projects that make use of them. For example, Franca uses KLighD.

Karsten's recommendations are for (graphical) visualization.

If all you want is a "list", then the basic tree editors as once exemplified by the Sample Ecore Editor and now much enhanced by EEF may be what you are looking for.
