                            '''Adempiere Architecture Solution UAL'''
                                  Architecture is King... ;)
      Application Dictionary (AD) :
          AD is the most important developer tool given by Adempiere.Like Elements, Tables,
          Columns, References, Windows, Tabs, Fields, etc.
          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.
      Callout :
          A callout can be looked at as an extension at the field level.
      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: <br>
            * Precise definition of data elements
            * Usernames, roles and privileges
            * Schema objects
            * Integrity constraints
            * Stored procedures and triggers
            * General database structure
            * Space allocations
            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.
      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 
          A routing is a description of which operations (process steps) have to be carried out and
          in which order to produce a material (product). 
      SQL Procedure :
          An SQL Procedure can be looked at as an extension at the process level.
      2Pack :
          It's related with Translating Dictionary Modifications from one Adempiere system to
      XML2AD :
          It imports several XML files into the database in order to modify the Application
          Dictionary of ADempiere.
