jkaster:davidi: "what are some example uses for OCL pre and post- conditions?" - dan: in pre conditions, you’re either inside and operation, or inside some class ...
jkaster:davidi: "I’ve looked at some long OCL expressions, and they are sometimes hard to read/comprehend. Do you have advice for how to "read" OCL?" - dan: that’s a really good question.

OCL is also very navigation-oriented, so you should figure out where you’re going.
