Hi all,

I have an Ecore metamodel and I am trying to make a textual syntax for it. One of the classes of my metamodel is generated in Xtext as follows:

House returns House:
{House}
'House'
name=STRING
'{'
(type=[ecore::EPackage|STRING])
'}'
;

where "ecore" is imported at the beginning of the xtext file.

When I use the tree editor, I load resource and then for the type of the house I can choose from loaded resources. How can I do the same in Xtext? To load the resource (EPackage) and then reference it in the type of the house?

Thank you!

You normally simply add Xtext nature to the project that has the ecore and add the ecore project to the dsls projects classpath and it should work ootb
You can use navigate open model element dialog to check which packages Xtext has indexed

Hi Christian,

When you say "to the project that has the Ecore", to what Ecore are you referring? To this one?

import "http://www.eclipse.org/emf/2002/Ecore" as ecore

or the Ecore whose package I want to reference in my dsl?

I tried to add the Ecore project of whose package I want to reference in the class path of the textual dsl, but I still don't get any suggestions when I try to reference it.

I mean the project containing your
Library.ecore (the one with the epackage you want to reference )
Did you check the navigate open model element dialog

index.php/fa/41815/0/

maybe you might also customize scoping similar as it is done for Xtext itself
there seems also a diff when projects use src folders or not.
you may bypass this using

public class MyDslUiModule extends AbstractMyDslUiModule {

	public MyDslUiModule(AbstractUIPlugin plugin) {
		super(plugin);
	}
	
    @Override
    public Provider<IAllContainersState> provideIAllContainersState() {
      return org.eclipse.xtext.ui.shared.Access.getWorkspaceProjectsState();
    }
}

Hi Christian,

Unfortunately I am now having issues with eProxyURIs.
I added Library.ecore to the class path of the project where I have the concrete syntax of my textual DSL.
I also loaded the dsl in Xtend, as you suggested in my other post.
My Xtend code now looks like this.

resourceSet = new ResourceSetImpl();
	resourceSet.getResourceFactoryRegistry().getExtensionToFactoryMap().put(Resource.Factory.Registry.DEFAULT_EXTENSION, new XMIResourceFactoryImpl());
	resourceSet.getResourceFactoryRegistry().getExtensionToFactoryMap().put(Resource.Factory.Registry.DEFAULT_EXTENSION, new EcoreResourceFactoryImpl());
	injector = new MyDslStandaloneSetup().createInjectorAndDoEMFRegistration;
       resourceSet = injector.getInstance(ResourceSet)
       resourceSet.getResource(URI.createFileURI(new File ("/Users/user/eclipse-workspace/Library/model/library.ecore").absolutePath), true)
       resource = resourceSet.getResource( URI.createFileURI(new File("xtendinput.mydsl").getAbsolutePath()), true); 
    
      root = resource.contents.get(0);
      modelRoot = root as ModelRoot;	
      println(modelRoot.package)


In the println I am expecting to get the EPackage of Library because that is what I have defined in the package attribute in the ModelRoot class of xtnedinput.mydsl.
However, I am getting the following

Quote:

org.eclipse.emf.ecore.impl.EPackageImpl@1e8823d2 (eProxyURI: file:/Users/user/runtime-XTend_xtends/xtend/xtendinput,mydsl#|0)


I also tried EcoreUtil.resolveAll(resourceSet), but no luck.
When I check the resourceSet I have

Quote:

org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi.impl.EcoreResourceFactoryImpl$1@1255b1d1 uri='file:/Users/user/eclipse-workspace/Library/model/library.ecore'

Hi

You appear to have a comma "," when surely you meant a full-stop "." in Quote:
eProxyURI: file:/Users/user/runtime-XTend_xtends/xtend/xtendinput,mydsl#|0

Hi Ed,

Yes you are right, but it is a full stop in Eclipse in the console. It was my mistake when I copied it, so that is not the cause of the error unfortunately.

I created another project to test it as follows:

In the eclipse workspace I created the following grammar:

grammar org.xtext.example.junit.JUnit with org.eclipse.xtext.common.Terminals

generate jUnit "http://www.xtext.org/example/junit/JUnit"
import "http://www.eclipse.org/emf/2002/Ecore" as ecore
Model:
	greetings+=Greeting*;
	
Greeting:
	'Hello' name=ID '!'
	 pako = [ecore::EPackage | STRING]
;


Then I launched the runtime and I created a plugin project, a package, and inside an Xtend class. This is how the Xtend file looks like:

package xtendunit

import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.resource.impl.ResourceSetImpl
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi.impl.XMIResourceFactoryImpl
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi.impl.EcoreResourceFactoryImpl
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.resource.Resource

import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.resource.ResourceSet
import org.eclipse.emf.common.util.URI
import java.io.File
import com.google.inject.Injector
import org.xtext.example.junit.JUnitStandaloneSetup
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EObject
import org.xtext.example.junit.jUnit.Model
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.util.EcoreUtil
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EPackage

class xtend {
	
	
	ResourceSet resourceSet 
	Injector injector	
	Resource resource
	
	EObject root
	EPackage p
	Model m
	
	def doEMFSetup(){
	resourceSet = new ResourceSetImpl();
	resourceSet.getResourceFactoryRegistry().getExtensionToFactoryMap().put(Resource.Factory.Registry.DEFAULT_EXTENSION, new XMIResourceFactoryImpl());
	resourceSet.getResourceFactoryRegistry().getExtensionToFactoryMap().put(Resource.Factory.Registry.DEFAULT_EXTENSION, new EcoreResourceFactoryImpl());
	injector = new JUnitStandaloneSetup().createInjectorAndDoEMFRegistration;
    resourceSet = injector.getInstance(ResourceSet)
   	resourceSet.getResource(URI.createFileURI(new File ("/Users/user/eclipse-workspace/Calendar/model/calendar.ecore").absolutePath), true)
	resourceSet.getResource(URI.createFileURI(new File ("/Users/user/eclipse-workspace/org.xtext.example.junit/model/generated/JUnit.ecore").absolutePath), true)
	resource = resourceSet.getResource( URI.createFileURI(new File("textual.junit").getAbsolutePath()), true);
	println(resourceSet)
	
	println(resource)
	}	
	def getRoot() {
	doEMFSetup	
	root = resource.contents.get(0);
	m = root as Model;	
	EcoreUtil.resolveAll(resourceSet)
	for (greetings : m.greetings){
		println (greetings.name)
		println (greetings.pako.name)
	}
}
	def static void main(String[] args) {
			new xtend().getRoot();
	}
}


In the workspace I have another Ecore metamodel Calendar, which I also imported in the runtime and I added it to the class path of the Xtend project by using class folder.

index.php/fa/41824/0/
index.php/fa/41825/0/

I created the following instance of the grammar which is located inside the plugin. .

Hello John! "calendar"


When I run Xtend I get the following:

org.eclipse.xtext.resource.SynchronizedXtextResourceSet@47747fb9 resources=[org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi.impl.EcoreResourceFactoryImpl$1@3113a37 uri='file:/Users/user/eclipse-workspace/Calendar/model/calendar.ecore', org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi.impl.EcoreResourceFactoryImpl$1@213e3629 uri='file:/Users/user/eclipse-workspace/org.xtext.example.junit/model/generated/JUnit.ecore', org.eclipse.xtext.linking.lazy.LazyLinkingResource@4e9658b5 uri='file:/Users/user/runtime-test/Xtendunit/textual.junit']

what i dont undestand.
why do you declare the rs twice.
shouldnt you first create it and then configure the registry
and not configure the registry split in two parts.

		EcoreUtil.resolveAll(resourceSet);
		Model model = (Model)xtextResource.getContents().get(0);
		System.out.println(model.getGreetings().get(0).getType().getNsURI());
	}

}

Hi Christian,

Many thanks for your answer. I was wondering how you don't get any issues with this line
	ResourceSet resourceSet = i.getInstance(ResourceSet.class);

Because for me it says:

Quote:

Type mismatch: Cannot convert from Class to ResourceSet


I tried to leave it
 resourceSet = i.getInstance(ResourceSet)

but of course now it doesn't work.
This is my implementation.

package xtendunit

import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.resource.Resource
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.resource.ResourceSet
import org.eclipse.emf.common.util.URI
import java.io.File
import com.google.inject.Injector
import org.xtext.example.junit.JUnitStandaloneSetup
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EObject
import org.xtext.example.junit.jUnit.Model
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.util.EcoreUtil
import org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EPackage
import org.eclipse.xtext.ecore.EcoreSupportStandaloneSetup

class xtend {
	
	
	ResourceSet resourceSet 
	Injector i
	Resource ecoreResource	
	Resource xtextResource	
	Model model
	
	def doEMFSetup(){
	// register ecore to xtext, needs xtext.ecore on classpath
		new EcoreSupportStandaloneSetup();
		// register the dsl
		i = new JUnitStandaloneSetup().createInjectorAndDoEMFRegistration();
		resourceSet = i.getInstance(ResourceSet)
		ecoreResource = resourceSet.getResource(URI.createFileURI(new File ("/Users/user/eclipse-workspace/org.xtext.example.junit/model/generated/JUnit.ecore").absolutePath), true)
		xtextResource = resourceSet.getResource( URI.createFileURI(new File("textual.junit").getAbsolutePath()), true);
		ecoreResource.load(null);
		xtextResource.load(null);
		EcoreUtil.resolveAll(resourceSet);
	    println(ecoreResource)
	    println(xtextResource)
		
	}	
	def getRoot() {
	doEMFSetup	
		model = (xtextResource.getContents().get(0)) as Model;
		System.out.println(model.getGreetings().get(0).name);
		System.out.println(model.getGreetings().get(0).pako);
		System.out.println(model.getGreetings().get(0).pako.nsURI);		
		
}
	def static void main(String[] args) {
		
			new xtend().getRoot();
	}
}


And this is what I get:

org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi.impl.EcoreResourceFactoryImpl$1@126be319 uri='file:/Users/user/eclipse-workspace/org.xtext.example.junit/model/generated/JUnit.ecore'
org.eclipse.xtext.linking.lazy.LazyLinkingResource@6c44052e uri='file:/Users/user/runtime-Transf_Generator_HOTs/Xtendunit/textual.junit'

Christian is showing Java syntax while you're using Xtend syntax. In Xtend, the reference to the class name in an expression context is implicitly like <ClassName>.class in Java, so if you add .class to that, you end up with <ClassName>.class.getClass() which is definitely not what you want because that's the same as Class.class...

Hi Ed,

Yes thank you!

I tried removing .class and leave it:

resourceSet = i.getInstance(ResourceSet)


But I get the result that I have shown in the prior message.

Hey Christian,

I am including the files as zip archives here as I cannot access Git for now.

DSL is the textual grammar dsl and is in the workspace.
EcoreToBeReferenced contains the Ecore metamodel whose package I want to reference.
Xtendunit contains the Xtend file and the instance of the dsl "textual.junit".

your model file looks bad

Hello John! "jUnit" looks better.
alternatively you have to use the other ecore in test
ecoreResource = resourceSet.getResource(URI.createFileURI(new File ("/Users/cdietrich/eclipse-workspaces/runtime-New_configuration/ToReference/model/toReference.ecore").absolutePath), true)
// TODO adjust path to your machine

Many thanks for all your help. That was the issue, that I was trying to reference the package from "toReference", but I was actually loading the resource of junit.

Best,
John
