Is there a way to programatically trigger the artifact generation using xtext, i.e, without being in the ide?

We're talking here about something like:

XTextGenerator gen = new ...
gen.generateArtifacts("my-grammar.xtext")

Context:
What we have is a lot of UI screen models.
We need to introspect them and generate an xtext grammar programatically.
Then using the generated grammar be able to generate artifacts dynamically.
For this we need to run the XText generate by code.

It is possible to execute the mwe workflows programatically.
I have looked at code for that, but I am afraid I don't remember exactly
where (perhaps mwe itself)... try searching for it.
