Hi there,

I'm writing a little codegen template for Ecore metamodels (it creates
some custom html documentation from custom EAnnotations).

I understand that Xtend2 IGenerators will magically generate code when
deployed in a new Eclipse instance by some sort of special Xtend Builder.

Since I do not have a custom DSL I want to generate code from, my
question is whether I could get the code generation running in the
initial Eclipse instance?
