PAD(R) - Provided by the Association of Software Professionals

PAD(R) is the Portable Application Description, and it helps authors provide product descriptions and specifications to online sources in a standard way, using a standard data format that will allow webmasters and software application librarians to automate app listings. PAD provides a complete content solution for application developers and the webmasters of software catalogs and directories.

PAD Overview -> Author Resources -> PAD Extensions Directory

PAD Extensions Directory

PAD was designed to grow with the industry. Many sites or companies may use this data set for various reasons. We have started a list of extensions developed for specific needs by the companies below.

Right click on the one(s) that you will need and choose 'Save Target As' and save them to your PAD generation tool (i.e. PADGen) directory. After saving an extension to your local drive, rerun your PAD generation tool so that the new extension page will appear. Filling these forms out online from this site will not insert them into your PAD file.

Note: The ASP does not endorse any of the companies above (except the ASP, of course). They are simply supporters of the PAD dataset.

To learn more about PAD Extensions, how to create a PAD Extension and how to implement PAD Extensions into your PAD generation tool, see the PAD Extensions Specification.
