Abstract: Simple Common Logic: A Constraint Language for the ODM

This paper presents the working draft MOF (Meta-Object Facility) metamodel for Simple Common Logic (SCL), one of the six metamodels currently envisioned for the Ontology Definition Metamodel (ODM) standards effort in the Object Management Group (OMG). SCL is positioned for use as a constraint language for the ODM, an alternative to OCL for those who need significantly more flexibility or expressivity. We provide historical context and insight into the design process for developing the metamodel, and briefly discuss ongoing and future work required to complete the SCL-related subset of the ODM.
