Hi
Recently, I modified the Xtext source code(version is 2.10). and then I want to use maven to build it. But when I execute "mvn install -Dmaven.test.skip=true" in the directory of '${Xtext_dir}/maven/org.eclipse.xtext.parent/' I find that the generated packges are installed to directory of '.m2/repository/org/eclipse/xtext/' instead of '.m2/repository/p2/osgi/bundle/'. But when I call the modified method in other projects(Like Sirius project), the build process fails. Then I debug the process, I find it use the use the packages in ".m2/repository/p2/osgi/bundle/", so my modification is unavailable.
Anyone could help me solve the problem?
Thanks in advance!

Xtext 210 is quite old so I cannot support you with building it

Anyway. You mix up two things.

(1) building single plugins and installing them to a maven repo
(2) building a p2 repository and make it consumable and actually consume it from another p2 build
That you are not doing is (2)

if xtext 2.10 uses tycho to build the repositories look out for a project with packaging <packaging>eclipse-repository</packaging>
but afaik huge parts of xtext 2.10 were built with buckminister and i have no idea how to get that running (maybe you can do a full build of all by calling some ant files
(see How to Build an Xtext p2 Repository in the readme as well)

inside the other projects build there are either p2 repositories configured in poms (with type p2) or inside .target files.

is there a reason you insist to use xtext 2.10
