Some files in a Spoofax project are re-created during each build. Marking these as derived makes Eclipse warn you when trying to edit.

DynamicDescriptorBuilder.setDerivedResources() currently already marks most generated files as derived. IIRC the only exceptions are build.generated.xml and lib/editor-common.generated.str since they are required for clean builds (see Spoofax/64 and the FAQ). If they were marked derived they could not be checked in to version control. If there are any other files that should be marked derived, please reopen this issue.

In particular, editor/java/

Also, would it not be better to always generate a (derived) BaseActivator and provide customization abilities by generating an empty subclass of BaseActivator (just once)?

Right, that’s another exception -_-;; It’s quite annoying that “derived” is used for both warning users about derived files and for version control. In the case of the editor/java files, I often end up checking them into subversion because Eclipse reports errors if you have a clean checkout and they don’t exist. Maybe this is not a big problem anymore now that the build script refreshes these files, but that would have to be tested.

Indeed, using a generated would probably be much nicer than simply overwriting the files as we do right now. karltk also wanted to change the ParseController class at some point, so the same pattern could be used there.

Duplicates of this issue: Spoofax/175, Spoofax/259.

include/EntitiyLang.packed.esv is currently NOT marked as Eclipse derived.
Hence SVN wants to checkin this file or marks it with a question mark. this is a bug.

I think the whole “include” Folder should be marked as “derived”.
Thanks for fixing this.

The include folder is indeed an issue. If you have mix-ins, the generated def and tbl files are not marked as derived.

Another folder to mark derived is lib-refactoring.
