My language is based on Xbase grammar and is similar to the Xtext domainmodel example.
I use an IJvmModelInferrer to generate two kinds of Java classes from the model:
* Java interface classes for entities
* and classes implementing these interfaces

Alle generated files are written by EclipseResourceFileSystemAccess2 to src-gen folder in the same Eclipse project (the project with the model file).

Is it possible to generate files to different Eclipse projects or even to a pre-configured file system locations outside of Eclipse workspace?

The following project structure is desired:

  • model-project/src/model.dsl
  • api-project/src-gen/x/y/z/
  • impl-project/src-gen/x/y/z/

hi you would have to customize JvmModelGenerator to use different outlets + a custom IOutputConfigurationProvider to provide these different outlets

Need training, onsite consulting or any other kind of help for Xtext?
