OCF is a software standard dealing with client applications, i.e. software that will run on a terminal (like a PC) and access a smart card.
Global Platform is also a software standard, but this time dealing with the management of the smart card itself : life cycle management (application installation, deletion), storage of application-specific crypto keys, etc. Please refer to the FAQ for more information.
Hopefully, this will clear up the confusion :-)
