I want to use my extension file as a library where I storage different functions. In order to implement a matching method which picks a function from the library for me, I want to iterate over the extensions (i.e. these functions) from a Java class. XtendFacade has not an access to the extensions. Has anyone here an idea how can I do that? Thanks for your comments!

Regards, Nadya

Hi, it is right that the extension facade hides this but a look into its code shows that something like this can done:

import org.eclipse.internal.xtend.xtend.ast.Extension;
import org.eclipse.xtend.expression.ExecutionContext;
import org.eclipse.xtend.expression.ExecutionContextImpl;
import org.eclipse.xtend.expression.Resource;
import org.eclipse.xtend.expression.TypeSystemImpl;

public class Main {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		ExecutionContext executionContext = createExecutionContext("template::test");
		((ExecutionContextImpl)executionContext).registerMetaModel(new JavaBeansMetaModel());
		for (Extension e : executionContext.getAllExtensions()) {
	private static ExecutionContext createExecutionContext(final String... extensions) {
		ExecutionContext executionContext = new ExecutionContextImpl(new TypeSystemImpl());
		executionContext = executionContext.cloneWithResource(new Resource() {

			public String getFullyQualifiedName() {
				return null;

			public void setFullyQualifiedName(final String fqn) {


			public String[] getImportedNamespaces() {
				return null;

			public String[] getImportedExtensions() {
				return extensions;
		return executionContext;


This prints all extensions in the given extension file.
This might solve your problem although i do not understand your usecase.
