Hi All,

I'm a beginner of xtext/xtend. Now I create one xtext project (A) for some setup file (*.a). Then I can follow some grammar to new some data definitions in *.a files.

Now I create another xtext project(B), and new xtext editor will be *.b. In *.b file, I hope I can use the data which are defined in *.a. But actually I only can get the BModel based on this *.b editor file.

if i can:
1. directly get the object of AModel, and then all data defined in *.a file could be read in *.b?

2. Access the A grammar to re-create data structure (import *.a file firstly) and then use it by AGrammarAccess or GrammarUtil or something else way?

Thanks in advance~~~

Is there anybody can give me help?

I just want to use the content assist on B project *.b editor, which can refer to data defined in *.a.

Thank you very much for your reply.

firstly I cannot access your link above.

For my problem, I can simply explain it again.

I create a xtext project A, the file extension could be *.a, and another xtext project B, the file extension could be *.b, now in a Eclipse workcenter *.a and *.b both can accessed. but I need to edit in *.b file and want to use content assist to access all available data which are defined in *.a files.

Is that more clear for you??

if " content assist to access all available data which are defined in *.a files." == referncing then this is described in my blog.

Hi Christian,

thanks very much for your reply. I think maybe I should find more cross reference topics.
