Total Dork-out, Dude.

I’ve been reading two auto-industry XML specs this morning, CAF 1.2 (Credit Application Format) and ADF 1.0 (Auto-lead Format).

Man, along with a cup of coffee, they’re fun readin’, esp. the decision and applicant blocks of the CAF spec.

Update: check out this huge ADF errata. It kind of sucks when a “standard” has that many errors…. Hell, check out this ommision, “There is currently no engine field for vehicle.” That is, the ADF format doesn’t allow the car lead to specify what type of engine they’d like. You can specify, trim, interior color, exterior color…but not engine…
