Xtext beyond the defaults - How to tackle performance problems

Nearly every Eclipse user is aware what Xtext is and what it is useful for. It is always a pleasure to see in which kind of areas it is used.
One reason is clearly, that it is really easy to build a first working example in no time. The grammar alone is sufficient and the rest is done by a code generator. Xtext will generate stub classes, that are ready to fill in individual logic for different areas.
By doing that most of the things just work, because Xtext comes with a lot of defaults that suits in most of the cases.

This talk will show with practical examples that this is not neccessarily true.
