Thanks - I have used this method with a good degree of success, see

Creating the applib value type first, then using the ...adapterFor(object) 
method made adding support multi-column SQL object store support 
real easy.

I was able to add support for the applib.value.Money value type quite 
easily, by extending AbstractJdbcFieldMapping to create a 
"AbstractJdbcMultiFieldMapping" type - which stores "currency" and 
"value" in separate columns.
