Hi,

I am trying to use Acceleo as standalone, I copy pasted the generated class in the Acceleo Eclipse plugin, but I am getting this error, how can I fix it :

java.io.IOException: './acceleo/generate.emtl' not found



The class :
public class Generate extends AbstractAcceleoGenerator {
    /**
     * The name of the module.
     *
     * @generated
     */
    public static final String MODULE_FILE_NAME = "./acceleo/generate";
    
    /**
     * The name of the templates that are to be generated.
     *
     * @generated
     */
    public static final String[] TEMPLATE_NAMES = { "generateElement" };
    
    /**

     * <p>
     * The main reason for this constructor is to allow clients of this
     * generation to call it from another Java file, as it allows for the

Hi

Sorry you need to provide a complete project so that I can see whether what is actually wrong.
