How to set up an eMoflon Core developer workspace

  • Install Eclipse Oxygen 2 with Modeling Tools (or higher)
  • Install XText 2.12.0 (or higher)
    • See Help -> Eclipse Marketplace... -> Find 'Eclipse XText'
    • Note: The entry says '2.11.0,' but 2.12.0 will be installed.
  • Clone Git repository from here: https://github.com/eMoflon/emoflon-core.git
  • Import the PSF file located here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/eMoflon/emoflon-core/master/projectSet.psf)
  • Run all MWE2 workflows to generate XText-specific code
    • See "Open Resource" dialog (Ctrl+Shift+R) -> Filter for files ending with .mwe2
  • Make sure that autobuild is active so that the remaining code is generated and the Java compiler gets triggered.
    • See Project -> Build Automatically
  • To test your setup,
    1. open a runtime Eclipse workspace,
    2. create a new eMoflon EMF project (File -> New -> Other... -> Filter for 'eMoflon' -> New eMoflon EMF Project Wizard),
    3. add a dummy class to the .ecore file in the /models folder of the freshly created project, and
    4. observe how eMoflon generates the corresponding EMF-compliant Java code into the /gen folder.
