I wanted to learn adapter-pattern. I read that tutorial,...

I know adapter pattern is like real adapter,:

1-What does this mean?
In the Adapter Design Pattern, a class converts the interface of one class to be what another class expects.


TemperatureClassReporter is a class adapter.

...TemperatureObjectReporter is an object adapter.

class adapter and object adapter?!!

May someone explain more about this tutorial?

Now if you implement the WindowListener interface, you need to implement all the methods declared in the WindowListener interface. However, if you extend the WindowAdapter class you may over-ride only the required methods.

Not many get the right opportunity !
