Backwardly compatible versions such as 1. The specifications are found here. One question you may have is: You might be using XML archetypes for example. These are explained in some detail in the specifications.
It also has an ADL parser and serialiser, and in the near future, will have a parser and serialiser for XML archetypes.
Additionally, ADL is a human readable syntax good for understanding the concepts and examples. However, it does not have to be used in archetype authoring or production systems - the XML form is completely equivalent.
Specifications Status The current state of the specifications is available here. Although most of the principal features have been determined and implemented, there remain a number of details which could be changed; these are indicated in the text below.
Please create new issues with the 'ADL 2' component specified. It also moves the copyright item from being a translatable string to a top-level non-translated string.
See here for more details. New internal coding system The coding system used in ADL 1. This has been replaced by a new coding system in which id-codes identify all archetype nodes, at-codes identify terminology values and ac-codes identify terminology value sets, internal and external.
Details here Terminology value-set constraints moved to terminology section Value sets used to be constrained inline. They are now moved to the terminology, in the form of a new 'value-set' construct, described here.
This enables the archetype terminology bindings structure to be simplified into one list. You can see this feature as follows: Via the above method, you have been viewing the archetype and template ADL source files. Of course normally you don't need to do this to understand what kind of artefact you are looking at - the explorer icons are specific to each type.
Path-based constraints for specialised archetypes and templates All specialised archetypes and templates state their constraints in a 'differential form' whereby new or changed elements of an archetype are defined using blocks of ADL or XML, in the XML format under a path.
The following example is typical: You can see some examples of this, as follows. You can also use the 'Source' tab to see the path-based constraints in their source form.
You can now navigate through the hierarchies in the archetype explorer, looking for specialised archetypes any archetype whose parent is another archetype rather than a classwhose constraints all use the path-based definition method illustrated above.
This ensures authors can maintain ordering of all items within container attributes, including over specialisation.
If you refer back to the problem-diagnosis example above in the differential formyou will see that the second two nodes include 'before' and 'after' markers respectively.
The former is 'before [at]' and the latter 'after [at]', indicating the nodes from the parent archetype with respect to which the new nodes should be situated. This flag will appear on any differential.
In addition, any generated flat form archetype. The flag primarily allows tools to detect that a source form archetype i. Most archetypes in the CKM repository when viewed in their Differential Source form Differential and Source tabs include the 'generated' marked in the top line.
By contrast, none of the archetypes in the ADL test repository contain differential archetypes with the 'generated' marker.
Exclusion of object constraints Object constraints can be excluded, enabling templates to choose which constraints to retain for the use case of the template.What are 'Activities of Daily Living - ADL' Activities of daily living are routine activities people do every day without assistance.
There are six basic ADLs: eating, bathing, getting dressed. Chris joined the ADL team as co-owner in January His favorite part about working at ADL is meeting all the different customers and telling them about his favorite appliance - the steam oven.

CAMBRIDGE ELEVATING Residential Elevators are becoming very popular.
Custom home elevators and light commercial elevators are our specialty. BYD and ADL haven’t been resting this summer, instead they have secured orders for nearly electric buses in London – a huge result to be sure.
In total, that’s already 89 ebuses ordered. I have found the First Edition of the Auto Dealer Law to be a valuable and informative publication for the automotive industry.
The contents are extensive and written to inform, educate and guide our dealer community through the legal maze of our constantly changing industry.
