Hi all,

I am trying to get around Epsilon ETL and XText. I want to use the XText model to write some transformation rules, but I cannot add it to ETL. ETL, only accepts the following model types.


Is there a way, to automatically generate one of these model types from the XText model? Or any other solution that might come to mind?

Thank you!

Hello John,

You can open the Xtext DSL file with the 'Sample Ecore Model Editor' using the Open With -> Other... context menu in the Package Explorer.
After that, the content of the editor can be saved as an *.xmi file using the File -> Save as Menu.

Hope that helps,

Yes. Open with Sample Ecore Model Editor worked (10 years ago), but it broke quite sometime ago and I still have a Bugzilla open [1]. The problem is that Xtext uses the classpath: scheme that is handled by irregular code in Xtext's non-standard ResourceSet rather than by a classpath: scheme protocol registration. Consequently tools that do not provide careful initialization fail when using standard functionality..
