Bottom line: when the partial OCL distribution as part of SimRel is inadequate, full OCL builds should now be accessed at and below https://download.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/ocl/builds

These builds use the JustJ technology developed by Ed Merks for EMF. Many thanks Ed. See https://eclipse.dev/justj/?page=tools and
https://git.eclipse.org/r/plugins/gitiles/ocl/org.eclipse.ocl/+/refs/heads/master/releng/org.eclipse.ocl.releng.promote/

TLDR

Traditionally, ZIPs were available from https://download.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/ocl/downloads/drops/ and https://archive.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/ocl/downloads/drops/

Following the advent of P2, repos were supported by https://download.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/ocl/updates/ and https://archive.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/ocl/updates/

The JustJ technology
- folds the zips into the P2 sites making the "drops" tree redundant
- uses "milestone" rather than "stable" for S-builds
- uses "release" rather than "releases" for the release sub-tree
- does not support interim/integration/I-builds
- rebadges the last milestone for a release rather than rebuilding
- enforces nightly/milestone clean-ups; there are no milestones for a previous release

These changes make re-use of the existing "updates" tree difficult so the new tree is "builds". It contains all recent builds and has links to archived builds/drops/updates.

Updating the traditional http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/downloads/?project=ocl query to use the new site is a WIP for the EF who are working to discontinue PHP.
Once PHP has gone, the old "drops" and "updates" may be deleted and replaced by links to "builds".

The only content known to be missing from the "builds" are some very very stale language packs and IP log links.
