Hi all,

I updated my Xtext and have the following problem:

before the update I was able to store some global vars in Xpand via:

«EXTENSION org::eclipse::xtend::util::stdlib::globalvar»

«storeGlobalVar("name", "value")»

and later access it from a java based extension with:


The problem now is that the previously static method to get/set the global vars are now non static and I have now idea how to access the variables now.

Bonus question:

How do I access the vars defined in my workflow files (inside of a java extension):

component = org.eclipse.xpand2.Generator {

		fileEncoding = fileEncoding

		globalVar = {
			name = "variable"
			value = "value"


thanks a lot!
