With the move towards UML becoming a family of modelling languages, there is a need to view the Object Constraint Language in the same light. The aim of this paper is to identify a meta-modelling facility that encompasses the specification of the semantics of a family of object constraint languages. This facility defines a common set of model concepts, semantic domain concepts and semantic mappings that can be conveniently reused when constructing new family members.
