For the pivot-based implementation oclType() is fully reflective, so if
you really want to do string-based type checking you can do:
self.name.oclType().name = 'Integer'
and type literals are functional so you can do
self.name.oclType() = Integer
as well as
 is an association qualifier not list index. See at().

'classes' is the List of EClass. This list contains some objects (same type, different name), and I want ocl checks when their types are different.
for example if type of all objects in the 'classes' is 'ejob', this expression returns false (but if it cheks type of objects, it should return true).

So replace Integer in my examples by YourClass.

So you need to use oclType()
As I wrote earlier oclType() is supported in a fully reflective fashion
the new pivot-based Eclipse OCL.
oclType() is not supported on the Ecore-based Eclipse OCL; where you may
find that eClass() works.
