Object Constraint Language (OCL)

Project Overview

OCL is a textual constraint language originally associated with the Unified Modelling Language (UML) to allow the expression of constraints over UML models. It is now also being used to define well-formedness rules over metamodels for domain-specific or general-purpose modelling languages (such as the UML itself), to define model transformations, and for a range of other development and research activities, some far beyond what was originally envisioned to be its use.

I have co-authored the submission that was eventually turned into the current OCL 2.0 OMG standard.
