Hi, Fran├žois,

The UML2 2.1 release has added support for generating operation bodies from
OCL specified in your UML model (in much the same way as my article). This
applies to operations defined on Stereotypes, as well, if you take
advantage of another new feature in the 2.1 release: static profile
definition. You can generate the Java code implementing your Profile
(converting it to an EPackage), and that generated code is enhanced with
OCL-specified constraints and operations.

I think that James is currently working on documentation of both of these
features. In any case, the UML2 newsgroup (which I have included in this
reply) can help you to get started. Also, if you search that newsgroup, I
think you will find some previous postings on this subject that would help.
