Error in "How to Start Programming with MPS"

Hi!

I try to follow steps, typed in the article "How to Start Programming with MPS".

When I try to create "New generator" - problem start.

There are differents between pictures, shown in the article and real situation.

First, in window, called "Generator properties" I can't find field called "Templates Model".

Second, in tree menu, I see the following picture:

generator ->

     templates ->

           TheSimplestLanguage..... ->

main ->

    main

But, in the article there is another hierarchy:

generator ->

     templates ->

           TheSimplestLanguage..... ->

MappingConfiguration.

So, I can't find node "MappingConfiguration"!

What I do wrong?

All steps before I done strongly by instruction. I tried do it one more time, but the result where same.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

Hi, the root node 'main' in the model located under the folder is the mapping configuration.

Please be advised that the starters guide article is obsolete.

We've fired build #339 while MPS has been in the middle of huge transition.

For instance, in generator, we replaced almost all 'java query methods' with embedded code-blocks.

And now a generator module has to be generated before it can be applied.

Thus the b339 is quite contradictory.

Probably it would be wise to wait for the next build.

Igor.
