Build Status

Rao X


This project is an implementation of RAO modelling language in Eclipse, using Xbase.


  • Install Ubuntu Desktop or any other linux distribution

  • Install Java 8

    IMPORTANT Latest version of openjdk at the moment of writing this (openjdk-8-jdk 8u66) crushes when usingSWT_AWT bridge. Oracle jdk distributions should be used instead. For debian-based linux distributions:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

Check java version:

java -version

If output is different than (except version numbers):

java version "1.8.0_66"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_66-b17)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.66-b17, mixed mode)

set it manually

sudo update-alternatives --config java
cd ~/Downloads
gunzip -c eclipse-dsl-neon-R-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz  | tar xvf -
cd eclipse
  • Git clone raox repository
ssh-add ~/.ssh/github.openssh.private.key
git clone git@github.com:aurusov/raox.git

[!] If your output differs from the one above by a lot of errors mentioning RULE_ANY_OTHER, you should run the generation process again and again until the bulid is succesfull. This is Xtext/Antlr bug caused by complex rules supporting unicode identifiers in grammar, sorry for the inconvenience
