We have a requirement to parse a language modeled using Xtext in Server side (typical Spring boot app) and get access to model elements.

Is there any example of achieving this? What I seen so far that Xtext parser needs access to Eclipse osgi bundles so just trying here and see if you have any example of making that work.

If that approach is not going to work, can we use the Antlr4.g file generated by Xtext during compilation and use that file to generate models/parser that could be used in the server?

Thank you for taking time to respond.

I cannot follow The xtext Wizard has options for maven and gradle and ist perfectly usable standalone

Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?

Most of Xtext can be used without OSGi. Of course you need Eclipse libraries, but that does not mean that they need an OSGi runtime. Have a look at the Pariser unit test generated by the wizard.

I never noticed that. Just tried a sample project and it is generating a jar file. I will try to deploy to server and see if it works end to end.

Thank you.
