Hi, i'm developing a documentation generator plugin for eclipse and i'm using xtext/xtend and docx4j for generating docx documentation. The problem is: the doGenerate method from the xtend class for generating documentation, requires a string format documentation. So, i have to export the docx4j output to string to use it with xtext/xtend. I tried various methods from the docx4j packages, and tried to convert the docx package to byte array then to string. But it doesn't work. Any idea??? Confused Confused

Perhaps the following code snippet to read in external files in the Generator may help:


import static extension com.google.common.io.CharStreams.*
def addIncludeFile(String filename) '''
«val File incfile = new File("..\\!includefiles\\"+filename)»
«IF incfile.exists()»
«FOR String line : new FileReader(incfile).readLines»
«line»
«ENDFOR»
«ELSE»
«addErr("Error addIncludeFile: >" +filename+"< not in !includefiles directory")»
«ENDIF»
'''

Invoked by:
«addIncludeFile("a.sampletext")»

The relative path is in most cases the directory with the eclipse.exe file.

Just tried and doesn't worked. I saved the docx using the save() method from the docx4j package, and then called the previous method to copy all the content into a string, but it didn't work.
