The Pivot code base has moved to Java 8 to exploit the type-based @NonNull annotations and eliminate the need to distribute a clone of the Java 7 support. Java 7 related support such as org.eclipse.ocl.jdt.annotation7 and org.eclipse.ocl.examples.codegen.asm3 are no longer distributed; only ASM 5 is supported.
 +
 +
The Classic Ecore/UML support retains Java 5 source compatibility.

The Neon release is installable on Luna, Mars and Neon platforms; movement to Java 8 terminates Helios, Indigo, Juno and Kepler installability.

In conventional metamodeling, myElement.oclAsType(MyDerivedElement) supports casting myElement to the type MyDerivedElement. myElement is typically an M1 instance of the M2 class MyDerivedElement.
 +
 +
In a UML Object Diagram, an InstanceValue may need to be cast to an instance of a type defined in the same diagram, same meta-level. This was previously supported by some pragmatic functionality that endeavored to be helpful in identifying which meta-levels were actually in use. Such pragmatic functionality was of course flaky, difficult to understand and ambiguous for e.g. an InstanceSpecification.

 +
The M6 support for the Pivot-based OCL introduces the new library operation oclAsModelType(aType) which may be used to cast to a type defined in the model. oclAsType(aType) may now only be used to cast to a type in the metamodel.
 +
 +
Using oclAsModelType() in the Xtext OCL Console gives similar but more undertstandable functionality to the M1/M2 pull-down menu option of the OCL Console.

Eclipse OCL New and Noteworthy items for the Neon 6.1.0 release.

Release Overview

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

The Pivot code base has moved to Java 8 to exploit the type-based @NonNull annotations and eliminate the need to distribute a clone of the Java 7 support. Java 7 related support such as org.eclipse.ocl.jdt.annotation7 and org.eclipse.ocl.examples.codegen.asm3 are no longer distributed; only ASM 5 is supported.

The Classic Ecore/UML support retains Java 5 source compatibility.

The Neon release is installable on Luna, Mars and Neon platforms; movement to Java 8 terminates Helios, Indigo, Juno and Kepler installability.
