Creating a Standalone Generator with Xtend


This session will outline the steps required to use Xtend as a standalone code generator. We will walk through these steps from beginning to end with only an EMF data structure as a starting point and a fully functional data logger in the end. Attendees should leave this talk with the knowledge required to create and debug a code generation project.

We will show the basics of using Xtend to generate code and other files, but we will not go in-depth with all of the possibilities available with Xtend. This talk is based on a presentation given at a local Eclipse Developers meetup and will be edited with beginners in mind to create a code generator from scratch.

The original slides are attached, but will be replaced with EclipseCon specific slides if this session is approved.
