Milestone 2

This milestone was completed on Wednesday, 24 September 2008.

Catching up to EMF 2.4

One of the more significant improvements in EMF's 2.4 (Ganymede) release was the association of resource factories with content types. Implementation of Bug 231435 leverages this capability now in OCL. Content types are defined for the OCL models as follows:

Model Extensions Content-Type Resource Factory
OCL Abstract Syntax ocl org.eclipse.ocl XMI
OCL Concrete Syntax ocl org.eclipse.ocl.cst XMI
OCL Ecore Binding ocl, ecore org.eclipse.ocl.ecore Ecore
OCL UML Binding ocl, uml org.eclipse.ocl.uml UML

Fancy Numbers

The OCL parser/interpreter, in previous releases, provided mappings of all of Java's primitive numeric types (and their wrapper classes) to the OCL Integer and Real types, as appropriate. This milestone adds support for the BigInteger and BigDecimal types, mapped to Integer and Real, respectively, to round out Java's numeric types. Thanks to Achim Demelt for the contribution!
