HI there,

I am currently trying to convert an existing DSL using the current XText version into the shema of another project. Xtext uses the folders 'src' and 'src-gen' as standard folders. Our project followes another convention so we want to use 'src/main/java' and 'src/gen/java'. Is there any simple way of changing the source folders. I cant find any hint where the generators are picking the standard directories from. Crying or Very Sad

Cheers

Phil

Hi Phil,

set properties 'srcPath' and 'srcGenPath' to Xtext's Generator component.

component = Generator {
 srcPath = "src/main/java"
 srcGenPath = "src/gen/java"


And... derived sources should normally go below the target folder (target/gen/java), if you already follow Maven project structure conventions Wink

Thanks...

That worked fine for me... Smile What about the xtend-gen folder... is there a way to redirect it as well? Seems like it is always placed relative to what is set in 'srcpath'.

Cheers

Phil

Hi you should be able to configure it in your projects properties ->
Xtend -> compiler
