Hi,

For the below dsl, im trying to generate files but nothing happens. Kindly let me know where the problem is;

DSL
====

Model:
(types+=Type)*;

Type:
Droplet | FormHandler | Properties;

Droplet :
"droplet" name=ID "{"
(prop += Property)*
"}";

FormHandler :
"formhandler" name=ID;

Properties :
name=ID;

Property:
(dataTypes += DataType)* name = ID ;

DataType :
name=ID;

=======================

Template.xpt
==============


«IMPORT org::xtext::example::mydsl1::atgDsl»

«EXTENSION templates::Extensions»


«DEFINE main FOR Model»
«EXPAND droplet FOREACH types.typeSelect(Droplet)»
«ENDDEFINE»

«DEFINE droplet FOR Droplet»
«FILE name+".java"»
public class «name» extends HttpServlet {

}
«ENDFILE»
«ENDDEFINE»

=======================
Workflow
=======
<!-- other part intentionally left -->

// this class will be generated by the xtext generator
register = org.xtext.example.mydsl1.AtgDslStandaloneSetup {}
load = {
slot = "types"
type = "Type"
}
}

component = org.eclipse.xpand2.Generator {
expand = "templates::Template::main FOREACH types"
outlet = {
path = targetDir
}
fileEncoding = fileEncoding
}


=======================

0 [main] DEBUG org.eclipse.xtext.mwe.Reader - Resource Pathes : [src/model]
0 [main] INFO org.eclipse.xpand2.Generator - No meta models configured, using JavaBeans as default.
156 [main] DEBUG xt.validation.ResourceValidatorImpl - Syntax check OK! Resource: file:/D:/eclipse-SDK-3.6.2-xtext-1.0.2-win32/ws/org.xtext.example.atgdsl.generator/src/model/Example.atgdsl

=============================
Thanks,
Arun

Hi,

please search the web for "xtext model slot empty" or something similar. This question is asked so many times that it should not be a problem finding an answer.
The brief explanation is: Model does not have a name feature (cannot be referenced by default), so it does not go to the index. But the reader picks up only elements from the index.

Hi,

you have actually two problems
(1)
by default only stuff that has a name gets exported an thus can be read by the reader component. But your types have a name so by default this should work.
have you made any changes to the nameprovider? or did you some simplifications to the grammar you posted? it actually is ambigous.
(2)
and if you read types in your workflow why then the template works on a model?

Christian,

Thanks for the reply. I did not have any NameProvider nor did any simplifications in model. But still the problem persists. I added and regsitered the NameProvider in runtime module as per some posts, but no luck. Seems i'm doing something wrong.

public class AtgDslNameProvider extends DefaultDeclarativeQualifiedNameProvider {

public String getQualifiedName(Model obj) {
return "Model";
}

public String getQualifiedName(Type obj) {
return "Types";
}

}


//runtime module

public class AtgDslRuntimeModule extends org.xtext.example.mydsl1.AbstractAtgDslRuntimeModule {

@Override
public Class<? extends IQualifiedNameProvider> bindIQualifiedNameProvider() {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
return AtgDslNameProvider.class;
}
}

Hi,

you won't need a nameprovider like this - since there is a name for the types
but when i create a new mydsl project with

Model:
(types+=Type)*;

Type:
Droplet | FormHandler | Properties;

Droplet :
"droplet" name=ID "{"
(prop += Property)*
"}";

FormHandler :
"formhandler" name=ID;

Properties :
name=ID;

Property:
(dataTypes += DataType)* name = ID ; 

DataType :
name=ID;


and

«IMPORT org::xtext::example::mydsl::myDsl»

«DEFINE main FOR Type-»
«FILE name+".txt"-»
«this»
«ENDFILE-»
«ENDDEFINE»



and

module workflow.MyDslGenerator

import org.eclipse.emf.mwe.utils.*

var targetDir = "src-gen"
var fileEncoding = "Cp1252"
var modelPath = "src/model"

Workflow {

	component = org.eclipse.xtext.mwe.Reader {
		// lookup all resources on the classpath
		// useJavaClassPath = true

		// or define search scope explicitly
		path = modelPath

		// this class will be generated by the xtext generator 
		register = org.xtext.example.mydsl.MyDslStandaloneSetup {}
		load = {
			slot = "types"
			type = "Type"
		}
	}

	component = org.eclipse.xpand2.Generator {
		expand = "templates::Template::main FOREACH types"
		outlet = {
			path = targetDir
		}
		fileEncoding = fileEncoding
	}
}



and

src/model/Example.mydsl (in yourcase Example.yourextension)
droplet A {

}
droplet B {

}



It works like a charm

Christian,

Thanks for the reply!. That solved that issue. Tell me what i have to do/change in generator workflow file if i want to generate files for formhandler, droplet , Properties ?

«DEFINE main FOR Model»
«EXPAND droplet FOREACH types.typeSelect(Droplet)»
«EXPAND formhandler FOREACH types.typeSelect(FormHandler)»
«EXPAND properties FOREACH types.typeSelect(Properties)»
«ENDDEFINE»

«DEFINE droplet FOR Droplet»
«FILE name+".java"»
public class «name» extends HttpServlet {
//setter and getter xpand
//other servlet related stuffs
}
«ENDFILE»
«ENDDEFINE»

«DEFINE formhandler FOR FormHandler»
«FILE name+".java"»
public class «name» extends GenericFormHandler {

}
«ENDFILE»
«ENDDEFINE»

«DEFINE properties FOR Properties»
«FILE name+".txt"»
«this»
«ENDFILE»
«ENDDEFINE»

Hi,

either give model a name with the nameprovider, and read models into the slot
or define the main Defintion for
Type and its subtypes, xpand will do a polymorphic dispatch,
