Subject: change the class name of the DB interface to Adapter ?


Currently, the word "Database" is quite overloaded in Torque. It means the name of the database
(as in Torque.getDefaultDB()) as well as the information about a particular database (as in
the class Database).
To add to the confusion, there is also the class name org.apache.torque.adapter.DB which holds
the interface for a database adaptor for the runtime.
I'd propose to resolve that confusion by changing that class name to "Adapter".
Also, deprecate all methods to retrieve an adapter but are named "DB" (as in Torque.getDB());
and add new methods which are named "Adapter" (as Torque.getAdapter()).

Any objections, comments, suggestions ?
