    An important area in AI Planning is the expressiveness of planning domain
    specification languages such as PDDL, and their aptitude for modelling real
    applications. This paper presents OCLplus, an extension of a hierarchical object
    centred planning domain definition language, intended to support the representation
    of domains with continuous change. The main extension in OCLplus provides
    the capability of interconnection between the planners and the changes that are
    caused by other objects of the world. To this extent, the concept of event and process
    are introduced in the Hierarchical Task Network (HTN), object centred planning
    framework in which a process is responsible for either continuous or discrete
    changes, and an event is triggered if its precondition is met. We evaluate the use of
    OCLplus and compare it with a similar language, PDDL+.
