Thanks to the help I received on this forum, I was able to create 2, yes 2 DSLs which have proven to be real time savers in my Java project. Awesome! Very Happy

Now I'm trying to create a standalone Eclipse product with these DSLs integrated so that I might distribute this environment to other people. This isn't going very well.

I consistently get the error:

The plug-in 'org.eclipse.epp.package.dsl' is not in the workspace and cannot therefore be modified. Please import it into your workspace and retry.

After some searching on the internet, I found the ZIP for org.eclipse.epp.packages-2.0.0-R which contains this package and imported that into my workspace. No change. I moved the package org.eclipse.epp.package.dsl into a source folder. Now to be sure, this package doesn't look like it has any source code, just image files and configuration stuff. Nothing changes. Still get the error and export to Eclipse product isn't working.

Google is not coming back with anything on this particular package expect a bunch of Git links.

I can run the Eclipse application OK (although there are some warnings). It may have something to do with me creating 2 Xtext projects which reference the same package, not sure. When I tried to do an export to plug-in, I got a bunch of warnings about duplicate entries.

i have no idea on that and have never seen it.
google gives me:

Solution: The export dialog contains an option to Synchronize before exporting. Do not select this option.

Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?
