Compile and Build Xpect by Yourself
The Manual Way: Prerequisite: Java 1.8 or newer; Eclipse 3.8 or 4.2 or newer; Xtext 2.9.2.
- Clone https://github.com/eclipse/Xpect (this repository)
- Import all projects into your Eclipse workspace.
- Set target platform to /org.eclipse.xpect.releng/target-platforms/eclipse_4_6_3-xtext_2_9_2/org.eclipse.xpect.target.eclipse_4_6_3-xtext_2_9_2.target (Preferences -> Plug-in Development -> Target Platform)
- Run /org.eclipse.xpect/src/org/eclipse/xpect/GenerateXpect.mwe2, /org.xtext.example.arithmetics/src/org/eclipse/xpect/example/arithmetics/GenerateXpect.mwe2, /org.xtext.example.domainmodel/src/org/xtext/example/domainmodel/GenerateDomainmodel.mwe2. Now your projects should be without errors markers. Sometimes, even after these steps, several projects still have error markers. However, this is a refresh problem in Eclipse. Simply clean build the projects with error markers will solve the issues.
- Run "mvn clean install" to build artefacts and create a p2 repository (formerly known as update site).
