Assertion Definition Language (ADL) is a high-level language that provides a formal grammar for
the expression of programmatic assertions. It can be used to automatically generate tests based
on API specifications and to produce natural language representations of these assertions for
documentation. The language has C/C++, IDL and Java dialects each of
which are designed to reflect the syntax of those languages to help developers to better describe native APIs.
The Assertion Definition Language system of translators, document and code generators
are freely available as a single package. Users may do anything with the system, as long as
they continue to give credit to the ADL project.
In addition to the ADL Translation System, there are several example interface
specifications available, including the POSIX.1 File System, the Test Environment Toolkit API,
and the CORBA 1.2 APIs.
ADL is well documented and support is available to licensed users.
