I designed a small DSL in Xtext and wrote a sample DSL application that is successfully converted to C++ code by using Xtend code generator. What I would like is to be able to click "Run" inside Eclipse and then to automatically compile the generated .cpp file and run it. How to do it?

for me this looks more like a question for the CDT forum.

Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?

Adding actions to the menu: https://www.vogella.com/tutorials/EclipseCommands/article.html

Then the code has to be compiled => Usually by configuring a project builder => Consult Eclipse CDT

And finally, what you get is an external program that you need to launch the program by creating a launch configuration and execute it. See e.g. https://stackoverflow.com/a/37330757/512227

But as Christian said, all of this is not related to Xtext. These are questions for Eclipse Platform & CDT.
