The OCL component provides the following capabilities to support OCL integration:
- Defines APIs for parsing and evaluating OCL constraints and queries on EMF models.
- Defines an Ecore implementation of the OCL abstract syntax model, including support for serialization of parsed OCL expressions.
- Provides a Visitor API for analyzing/transforming the AST model of OCL expressions.
- Provides an extensibility API for clients to customize the parsing and evaluation environments used by the parser.
The OCL parser is generated by the LALR Parser Generator, a SourceForge project, licensed under the EPL v1.0. Download it from the LPG home page. This site includes the generator executable required to regenerate the parser code.
