-Because all PADL creators are builders (as in the Builder design pattern) and must conform to the same interface ''​padl.kernel.ICodeLevelModelCreator''​ provided by [[PADL]], it is simple to provide a unified entry point for all of them. Also, the creation of interesting models often require the additional steps of:+In general, a code-level model can be obtain for a system through reverse-engineering/​parsing using: 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +final ICodeLevelModel codeLevelModel = 
 +   ​Factory.getInstance().createCodeLevelModel(<​Name>​);​ 
 +codeLevelModel.create( 
 +   new <​A>​Creator( 
 +       <​FileRepository>​.getInstance(),​ 
 +       new String[] { <Some files> }), <Recurse in directories>​);​ 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +where: 
 +    * <​Name>​ can be any String; 
 +    * <​A>​Creator is any class implementing the ICodeLevelModelCreator interface. A creator is the concrete parser or reverse-engineering algorithm that builds a PADL model from some files; 
 +    * <​FileRepository>​ is any class implementing the IFileRepository interface. A file repository allows the meta-model and the creator to access necessary PADL resources (constituents,​ analyses, etc.) in a platform-independent way; 
 +    * <Some files> are any String pointing towards the files/​directories to be parsed, as required by the creator; 
 +    * <Recurse in directories>​ is a Boolean flag that allow you to specify only the top most directory of a set of source files.
