See docs:
<table name="accountTypes" javaName="AccountType">

Hmmm, perhaps Torque is not what you need. But I'm not sure if there is
a framework that puts your database tables in a "usable java
perspective". Torque isn't able to understand the background of your
database design.

I'm a little bit confused about that example. Has Account a foreign key
to Company...

Then there will never be more then one company for one account.

... or is there something like a link table between Account and Company
(f.e. AccountCompanyAssignment)?

Then make a select with the account in the AccountCompanyAssigment and
join the companies. You will get a list of AccountCompanyAssignments.
Extract the companies from that list in a wrapper method in
AccountCompanyAssignmentPeer and return the list of companies:

public static List getCompanies(Account account) throws Exception {
  Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
  criteria.add(ACCOUNT_ID, account.getID());
  List result = doSelectJoinCompany(criteria);
  List companies = new ArrayList();

  for (AccountCompanyAssigment assignment : result)
  return companies;

Create your own method by copying a doSelectJoinAllExcept*() method and
add the excepted related table. It's not difficult. I think there was
something in the documentation about this.
