In this talk, we present our experiences using TMF Xtext for creating our automotive language: ARText, a textual language for the specification of AUTOSAR systems. AUTOSAR is a joint initiative from various automotive companies defining a standard architecture, methodology and middleware for automotive systems.

To address these challenges, we extended the generated Xtext editors with the following features:

This presentation will give an overview on how the new TMF Xtext was applied to ARText and how Xtext helped us accomplish our goals.
