Ecore2Java not working from CLI [message #425521] Sat, 29 November 2008 11:40 Go to next message

Originally posted by: luzi.anderegg.ergon.ch

Hi,

I want to start the EMF generator from the command line, but somehow it
always writes the generated java files in the wrong directory (using the
Ecore2Java ant task as well as using the Generator application). From
within Eclipse, I have no problem using the ant task Ecore2Java. Using
the Generator application within Eclipse writes the generated java files
as well to the wrong directory. It seems that the whole generator thing
is very sensitive to path names (relative or absolute), current
workspace, etc. Are the parameters in the Ecore2Java, in the Generator
application and also in the genmodel (e.g. the model directory) absolute
or relative?

Thanks for any information
Luzi

How are you specifying the directory?

Of course. When running within Eclipse relative paths have meaning
relative to the workspace, but without a workspace, that's not so clear.

When they are absolute, they have absolute meaning that's always the
same. When they are relative, they will be interpreted in a way
relative to the running context either relative to the workspace or as a
path relative to the current working directory.

I tried it in many different ways. Has the current working directory in
my CLI also some influence?

That's what I said below, right?
