Developer / company: openEHR

Archetype Definition Language, or ADL, is a formal language for expressing archetypes, and can be categorised as a knowledge description language. It provides a formal, abstract syntax for describing constraints on any domain entity whose data is described by an information model (e.g. expressed in UML/OCL).
It is primarily useful when very generic information models are used for representing all data in a system, for example, where the logical concepts Patient, Doctor and Hospital might all be represented using the class Party, Address, and related generic classes. Archetypes are then used to constrain the valid structures of instances of these generic classes to represent the desired domain concepts.
ADL is intended for software developers, technically-oriented domain specialists and subject matter experts. Although ADL is primarily intended to be read and written by tools, it is quite readable by humans and ADL archetypes can be hand-edited using a normal text editor.

Archetype Definition Language works with the following file extensions:
