Please move this kind of questions to the public MDT/OCL newsgroup.
This newsgroup is usually for developers purposes
I don't know the BPMN2 metamodel, but have you had a look to the closure
operator ?. It looks like it fits quite well to your needs...
Try the following expression as the body of your operation (without any
On the other hand, shouldn't be the result of your operation a set of
P.S: closure operator will formally become specified in the OMG OCL 2.3
