Expressions written in Object Constraint Language (OCL) within a UML model assume a context, depending upon where they are written. Currently the exact nature of this context is not fully defined. Furthermore there is no mechanism for defining the context for OCL expressions in extensions to UML. This paper defines the context of OCL expressions, and proposes precise and flexible mechanisms for how to specify this context.
