Eclipse OCL New and Noteworthy items for the 2019-03 (6.7.0) release.

Release Overview

This minor release fixes a few bugs and provides enhanced extensibility for OCL-based applications such as QVT.

The significant changes for the Pivot-based OCL are:

  • Addition of persistence of the Map type as an Ecore EMap

This change fixes a bug whereby EMap declarations such as EAnnotation.details were treated as an OrderedSet(EStringToStringMapEntry) rather than as Map(String,String). Code using the erroneous interpretaion such as

eAnnotation.details->select(e | e.key = 'wanted' and e.value <> null)

must be recoded as

eAnnotation.details->select(k <- v | k = 'wanted' and v <> null)

Eclipse versions

The 2019-03 release is installable on Mars, Neon, Oxygen and Photon platforms provided Xtext 2.9 or greater is also installed.

The 2019-03 sources are buildable on Photon or 2018-09 or 2018-12 or 2019-03.

Java versions

Java 8 on Windows was used to develop and test the milestones of this release.

Java 11 on Windows was briefly used to maintain and test the 2019-03 release candidates. It appears to work although Java code generation/compilation is nearly three times slower.

Java 8 on Jenkins, Linux was used to build and test the release candidates.

The Classic Ecore/UML plugins have been tested on Mars, Neon, Oxygen and Photon and on a Java 5 Virtual Machine. Standalone execution requires only the org.eclipse.osgi plugin from Eclipse Kepler or a spoof of org.eclipse.osgi.util.NLS and org.eclipse.osgi.framework.

The Pivot plugins require at least a Java 8 Virtual Machine and at least Xtext 2.9.1. Testing on Oxygen has a couple of test failures. Testing on Mars and Neon has a few editor/console startup failures.
