I am generating a method declaration in which I use the result of a private method that returns a String.
In that method, I want to add type references.

However, the necessary imports are not added to the generated class, presumably because the method is not part of the method's body assignment.

Here is some nonsense code that demonstrates the problem:
val myClass = findClass(className)
myClass.addMethod("myMethod", [
  body = '''
    «SomeType» s  = new «SomeType»(); // This imports just fine
    «getSomeStringWithType()» 
  '''
])

private static def String getSomeStringWithType() {
  return '''
    «SomeOtherType» s2 = new «SomeOtherType»(); // This is not imported
  '''
}


How can I get SomeOtherType to be imported?
Perhaps there is a way to programmatically add imports to a MutableClassDeclaration?

did you consider to set the type of getSomeStringWithType to StringConcatenationClient instead of String

No, I hadn't as I wasn't aware of it.

It looks like it's doing exactly what I need.

Thanks, Christian!
