About this blog

My name is Karsten Thoms and I am working as a Senior Software Engineer for Karakun, Germany. This blog is about all technical stuff that I am interested in or that I am facing in my projects. I am heavily involved into Model Driven Software Development and strongly believe that it helps to be more efficient in mission critical projects. In this area I am working on several open source projects, and you will find some detail information about this projects that might be useful for your work. I am working most of my work time at our customers in different projects throughout Germany.

Personally I am now 46 years old, married since 2008 and we have two lovely daughters. I am living in Dortmund, and am fan of the local football club Borussia Dortmund.

  1. Hi,
    I read https://kthoms.wordpress.com/category/software-development/mdsd/openarchitectureware/ because I encountered the following using Eclipse 3.5:

    36222 ERROR Generator – Unable to load extension file : org::eclipse::xtend::util::stdlib::io
    EvaluationException : Unable to load extension file : org::eclipse::xtend::util::stdlib::io
    org::eclipse::xtext::generator::ModuleExtensions.ext[128,26] on line 5 ‘simpleMethodName(key.type)’
    org::eclipse::xtext::generator::GuiceModuleRt.xpt[2085,20] on line 71 ‘bindMethodName(this)’
    org::eclipse::xtext::generator::GuiceModuleRt.xpt[1414,37] on line 45 ‘EXPAND bindingMethod FOREACH bindings’

    Can you give me a little more detail on where io.ext should be created ?
