I have been experimenting with emf's ocl and I have a related question.

I form the following expression:

exp = QueryFactory.eINSTANCE.createQuery(
"self.declaredFacets->asSet()->union(self.superTypes.declaredFacets)- >asSet())",

PartyType is an EObject.It has supertypes of EObjects. It has an
eStructuralFeature declaredFacets. When I evaluate this expression on a
PartyType object which has two declared facets but no superType, I get an
"IllegalArgumentException: Illegal operation(null.union(null)".

When I change the expression to:
exp = QueryFactory.eINSTANCE.createQuery(
"self.declaredFacets->asSet()->union(self.superTypes->asSet()- >collect(p :

everything works fine. Do I have to use collect whenever an eStructural
feature (in this case superTypes) might return null, is this a bug or am I
doing something wrong?

I would appreciate any comments,
