Dates Language in 3.0

The dates language used to be a complete sample project that could just be opened. In the latest 3.0 the dates language is now in a separate sub folder mps-dates/languages as a collection of jar files. I would like to experiment with the Dates language to become part of my own language. However, I do not understand how to use these jar files in my project, can anyone explain why the sample project is gone and/or how to use the current jar files?

In the RC2 I still see dates i n a separate package called "baseLanguage.dates and obsolete languages".  I am wondering what the status of the dates language will be in 3.0 final.

Hello, Jos,

The zip file contains plugins for MPS. You can install them by unpackaging this zip file into your plugins folder. It is located in:
  • for Windows and Linux %USER_HOME%/.MPS30/config/plugins
  • for Mac ~/Library/Application\ Support/MPS30/

Hi Julia,

I just tried this with RC4 (windows), but I still have no Dates language that I can import or use otherwise.
I also tried to extract the file inside the plugins folder of the MPS installation, no effect ether.

Jos,

If you open "Settings" dialog via "File->Settings" and choose "Plugins" section, do you see "MPS Dates" plugin there?
You did not by any chance extracted the zip into a separate folder? The folder mps-dates from the zip should be directly in the plugins folder.
