1. You install (include the bundles for) your dsl along with xtext, emf,
etc. in your RCP application. Does your .mydsl depend on JDT (does it
just the java model in any way - classpath resolution of resources,
types, etc.)? If so, you need to include JDT.
2. You simply use EMF to open a .myDSL file (a Resource) - this will
trigger the parser and produce an EMF Resource with an EMF model.
Question somewhat unclear depending on what is in your RCP application,
and you want to allow users to do. Edit .mydsl files? Do you plan to
ship some .mydsl files as some sort of library that they are supposed to
just read/use in the form of a model? Do you want to generate things
from .mydsl and use that instead in the RCP?
Hope the general answer helps though.
