Issue is with this page: https://unifysolutions.jira.com/wiki/display/IDB305/Adapter+Engine+configuration
Namely (as per the comment I added there)
1) The Composite Adapter Configuration should also have its attributes documented (AdapterID and AdapterName at the very least are valid and I believe required)
2) The Composite Adapter also takes an image as a child element, which is also required.
