Unsuccessful build using Maven due missing EMF classes [message #1787128] Sat, 19 May 2018 12:40 Go to next message

I am moving my projects to Maven and start having problems with what looks like missing EMF classes.

The error I am getting is as follows

The method getRoot(EObject, boolean) is undefined for the type Class<EcoreUtil2>

The problem can be easily recreated using sample DSL Hello generated by the Xtext project wizard by adding the following class.
package org.xtext.example.util

import org.eclipse.xtext.EcoreUtil2
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EObject

class Utility {

def void doit(EObject context) {
EcoreUtil2.getResourceSet(EcoreUtil2.getRoot(context, true)).allContents.toList
}

}

I am new to Maven, but suspect that there are some missing packages in the Maven repository or something wrong with dependencies.

Version: Oxygen.3a Release (4.7.3a)
Xtext 2.12
Maven 1.8

Does anybody have a similar problem and how to solve it?

Hi Christian, Thanks for your reply.
Basically, I am developing utility class in one of my Xtext projects that navigates thru the resources. All works fine when building using native Eclipse. I moved my projects to Maven to benefit from automation
outside eclipse.

I managed to recreate the problem in a very simple project created by default by the New Xtext Project wizard.

I only added a simple Xtend file with one method as described above.
It looks like EcoreUtil2 extends EcoreUtil

and EcoreUtil has a public method

public static Notifier getRoot(EObject eObject, boolean resolve)

It works fine in eclipse and does not indicate any problems. It just when running verify in the mvn.

and no ecoreutil does not have a getroot (at least not in all versions)
maybe you maven and explicit or implicit target platform differs
do where does the ecoreutil.getroot come from.

then the question is: if you use maven, did you set the target platform to use an update site that contains that version or did you change eclipse to use the target platform that is used in maven?

well, I used all defaults set by New Xtext Project. It generates the pom file as attached.

It shows dependency as

<dependency>
<groupId>org.eclipse.emf</groupId>
<artifactId>org.eclipse.emf.mwe2.launch</artifactId>
<version>2.9.0.201605261059</version>
<scope>compile</scope>
</dependency>

Could it be a problem?

No. Have a look at the target file. Open it and hit the button that says something
Like „set as target platform "

New Xtext Project wizard produces the following target file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<?pde version="3.8"?>
<target name="z2.target" sequenceNumber="1">
<locations>
<location includeAllPlatforms="false" includeConfigurePhase="false" includeMode="planner" includeSource="true" type="InstallableUnit">
<unit id="org.eclipse.jdt.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.platform.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.pde.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.draw2d.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.emf.sdk.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.xpand" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.xtend" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.xtend.typesystem.emf" version="0.0.0"/>
<repository location="http://download.eclipse.org/releases/neon/201606221000/"/>
</location>
<location includeAllPlatforms="false" includeConfigurePhase="false" includeMode="planner" includeSource="true" type="InstallableUnit">
<unit id="org.eclipse.emf.mwe2.launcher.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<repository location="http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emft/mwe/updates/releases/2.9.0/"/>
</location>
<location includeAllPlatforms="false" includeConfigurePhase="false" includeMode="planner" includeSource="true" type="InstallableUnit">
<unit id="org.eclipse.xtext.sdk.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<repository location="http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/tmf/xtext/updates/releases/2.12.0/"/>
</location>
</locations>
</target>

I have modified file to point oxygen instead of neon, so it looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<?pde version="3.8"?>
<target name="z1.target" sequenceNumber="1">
<locations>
<location includeAllPlatforms="false" includeConfigurePhase="false" includeMode="planner" includeSource="true" type="InstallableUnit">
<unit id="org.eclipse.jdt.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.platform.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.pde.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.draw2d.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.emf.sdk.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.xpand" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.xtend" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.xtend.typesystem.emf" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.emf.mwe2.launcher.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<unit id="org.eclipse.xtext.sdk.feature.group" version="0.0.0"/>
<repository location="http://download.eclipse.org/releases/oxygen/"/>
</location>
</locations>
</target>

This solved problem with getRoot().
