You've given yourself a very difficult first problem.
Firstly, I would use clearer names: countFeatures() really ought to
return an Integer count, rather than just be a wrapper for an existing
Next: an invariant must be a boolean expression.
Overriding is a complex semantic issue that has different definitions in
different languages, you therefore need to understand your semantics
and realise them.
In order to determine an override you need to compare the signature of
operationA against the signature of operationB. You therefore need
helper functions such as
overrides(signatureA : OrderedSet(Type), signatureB : OrderedSet(Type))
: Boolean ...
getSignature(operation : Operation) : OrderedSet(Type) ...
which you can use in iterations/set subtractions.
You may find the MDT/OCL Example OCL Interpreter Console very helpful
for empirical exploring of your logic. As of M6, you can embed your OCL
in Ecore. See http://wiki.eclipse.org/MDT/OCLinEcore
