Hi all,

I developped a code generator using XTEXT and I generated the assoicated eclipse plug-in. This generator generates C++ code used by an application.

I would like to use two ways to generate the code:
1. From the eclipse editor by a command in the context menu.
2. From a makefile.

I thinks I can create a java execute wich contains the generator. I'm looking for it, but I do not found the solution.

Could you help me,
Thanks.

Hi have a Look at the generatorfragment in the workflow. You can configure it to generate a Java Main.
You can use this Main to Export a Runnable Jar using the Export wizard eclipse offers for that


Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?

Thanks for your answer. It is working fine.

For more details:
- Add 'generateJavaMain = true' to the fragment 'generator.GeneratorFragment' in the workflow
- Run the workflow configuration: a main file will be generated in the folder generator
- Creat a run configuration 'Java Application' in your project using the main class of our generator.
- 'File' > 'Export'> 'Runnable JAR File' and select the configuration previously created.
