Adempiere Architecture Solution UAL Architecture is King... ;)
A Application Dictionary (AD) : AD is the most important developer tool given by Adempiere.Like Elements, Tables, Columns, References, Windows, Tabs, Fields, etc. Architecture: The fundamental organization of a system, embodied in its components, their relationships to each other and the environment, and the principles governing its design and evolution. Architecture has two meanings depending upon its contextual usage: 1. A formal description of a system, or a detailed plan of the system at component level to guide its implementation 2. The structure of components, their inter-relationships, and the principles and guidelines governing their design and evolution over time. Architecture Description: An architecture description is a formal description of an information system, organized in a way that supports reasoning about the structural properties of the system. It defines the components or building blocks that make up the overall information system, and provides a plan from which products can be procured, and systems developed, that will work together to implement the overall system. It thus enables you to manage your overall IT investment in a way that meets the needs of your business. Architecture Framework: An architecture framework is a tool which can be used for developing a broad range of different architectures. It should describe a method for designing an information system in terms of a set of building blocks, and for showing how the building blocks fit together. It should contain a set of tools and provide a common vocabulary. It should also include a list of recommended standards and compliant products that can be used to implement the building blocks.
C Callout : A callout can be looked at as an extension at the field level.
D Data Dictionary: A data dictionary is a set of metadata that contains definitions and representations of data elements. Within the context of a DBMS, a data dictionary is a read-only set of tables and views. The data dictionary is database in its own dictionary. Amongst other things, a data dictionary holds the following information:
* Precise definition of data elements * Usernames, roles and privileges * Schema objects * Integrity constraints * Stored procedures and triggers * General database structure * Space allocations
E Enterprise: An Enterprise in this context " Enterprise Architecture" is any collection of organizations that has a common set of goals and/or a single bottom line. In that sense, an enterprise can be a government agency, a whole corporation, a division of a corporation, a single department, or a chain of geographically distant organizations linked together by common ownership. Enterprise Modeling: Enterprise modelling is the process of improving the enterprise performance through the creation of enterprise models. This includes the modelling of both business processes and IT.Also An enterprise model is a computational representation of the structure, activities, processes, information, resources, people, behavior, goals, and constraints of a business, government, or other enterprises.
M Meta Data: Metadata is structured, encoded data that describe characteristics of information-bearing entities to aid in the identification, discovery, assessment, and management of the described entities.Also Metadata is a set of optional structured descriptions that are publicly available to explicitly assist in locating objects.
Module : A New Module in Adempiere is * Table-Column structure * Input handling and validation rules * Document Type & Print Format * Define Default Accounts * Workflow Process * Callout definition and process-button definition consolidated via Report & Process * Final Consolidation in Windows under the Menu tree
R Routing: A routing is a description of which operations (process steps) have to be carried out and in which order to produce a material (product).
S SQL Procedure : An SQL Procedure can be looked at as an extension at the process level.
T 2Pack : It's related with Translating Dictionary Modifications from one Adempiere system to another.
X XML2AD : It imports several XML files into the database in order to modify the Application Dictionary of ADempiere.
