Hello,
I am provided with an eclipse instance with an EMF-based model Editor with interactive OCL but without Access to the underlying ecore model.
I am looking for a way to extend the language by defining certain helper-operations on certain classes (as could be done inside the ecore) but I am limited to the OCL Interpreter. Is there any way to do that?
Thanks!

Hi

The interpreter is limiting since it's really just a one line (with line wrap) expression evaluator.

You should however be able to define all your additions in a Complete OCL document, then after loading your Ecore metamodel, probably in the Sample Ecore Editor, you can use OCL->Load Document to load your additional declarations into the Ecore. You can then use these declarations in 'one line' evaluations.

Thanks, Ed,
unfortunately I am in a Situation that the underlying ecore is not present anymore but I have only the generated Editor (with some extensions).
I suppose there is no other way left to enhance the capabilities of the OCL-console?

Hi

I don't really understand since generation copies the *.ecore if necessary. But if you have really lost it, the EMF create model from annotated Java, or the Modisco reverse engineering could enable you to regenerate it or at least give you a good first draft for manual recreation. You are pretty much dead without it.
