Runtime

Acceleo is based on three separate components: the compiler, the generation engine and the tooling. The acceleo runtime is composed of the generation engine and the compiler.

Compiler

The Acceleo compiler can be found in the bundle org.eclipse.acceleo.parser. In this bundle, you can use the class AcceleoParser to parse a "mtl" file and return the root of the "emtl" file. That root can then be serialized in a file with the "emtl" extension. The Acceleo parser can parse Java.io.File, org.eclipse.core.resources.IFile or java.lang.StringBuffer and then create the emtl file matching the mtl File or IFile or it can return the emtl in EMF resource.

Generation engine

The generation engine can launch an Acceleo generation from an Acceleo module and and EMF model.

Stand alone

The Acceleo runtime can be used in a stand alone environment without any dependencies to the Eclipse IDE, as such it can be embedded in a good old Java application. Acceleo 3.1 will feature some specific Ant and Maven tasks in order to call the Acceleo compiler and the Acceleo generator in stand alone easily.
