Hello together,

I want to create a Test Description, written in Test Description Language (TDL), which is coded in Xtext. But I struggle to find an approach to get this task done.

The provided code represents a data object defined in OpenApi Specification and can be easily derived by hand. The current Problem is to translate the provided OpenApi definition to TDL.

In the article is mentioned that Xtext, or DSLs in general, can generate code. In addition, Sven Effting mentioned in his Video to Xtext's Introduction many components that could help with the problem (Parser, AST, Code Generator, Interpreter, ...).
It is hard to understand which of those components are needed and which are provided.

For now I want to create a Test Description file (.tdlan2) that takes the OpenApi's definition of components/schemas/ResourceData and translate it to the DSL.

openapi: 3.0.3
  title: 'Example'
  version: '1.0.0'

  # Reference to the base document
  description: 'ETSI ES 203 647 ...'
  url: ''


      # Structured type
      type: object
        # Property name
          # Property type
          type: string
          type: string
            # Set of allowed values
            - big
            - bigger
            - biggerer
          # Default value for non-required property
          default: big
          # Date-time value encoded as string
          type: string
          format: date-time
        # Set of required properties
        - id

Package ExampleAPI {
    Import all from Standard;
    Import all from HTTP.MessageBased; 
    //From Example API specification    
    Type ResourceData extends Body (
      id of type String,
      //can be skipped
      optional ^size of type Integer, 
      //can be skipped 
      optional created of type String
