Xtext Success Story

Just returned from a workshop in Switzerland. One of the guys there managed to

  • Get acquainted with and install Eclipse.
  • Install and learn oAW Xtext.
  • Define a grammar and generate the code.
  • Deploy the editor at the customer's side.

All of that within 5 days. What does that mean

  • That guy is really a wizard.
  • Eclipse is very easy to install and use.
  • Xtext can really give you a head-start into modeling.

It feels so good to have such a mighty toolstack at hand :-)
