Definitions for "Adapter"
A connecting tube; an adopter.
A device for connecting hoses of the same size with non-matching hose threads, or connecting a threaded coupling to a quick-connect coupling. see also: Coupling

An object whose sole purpose is to implement an Interface for another object. See Interfaces and Adapters.
A component that converts one interface to another. In the context of integration, an adapter adapts an application's protocol to another. Adapters, when used for Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), adapt the application's interface (e.g., SQL using ODBC) to a \"messaging interface\" (e.g., XML messages transmitted using Message Oriented Middleware (MOM) that complies with the Java Message Service (JMS) specification). SCT has developed an OpenEAI adapter for Banner that is implemented by two separate components: Banner Gateway consumes messages. Banner Messaging Service publishes messages.
a general design pattern for mapping one or more interfaces into yet another

(Adaptor) - An intermediate device to provide for attaching special accessories or to provide special mounting means.
In a camera, the device that allows the camera to be attached to a variety of scientific instruments or lenses. Also called mount adapter, lens mount adapter. See also C-mount, F-mount.
A rocket component designed to connect two airframe sections of differing diameter. These parts are often streamlined to smooth the flow of air between the airframe sections. It is also often referred to as a transition.
In rocketry, an adapter is a hollow cylindrical or conical segments between rocket stages or between the top rocket stage and the shroud that houses a spacecraft. They transfer the thrust from the lowest stage and are discarded during staging. This usage, which may appear overelaborate in that such adapters are inert structural elements rather than dynamic converters of signals or electrical power, actually derives from French.

Keywords:  tme, tec, tivoli, console, event
For Risk Manager, adapters monitor resources so that you can manage the resources. They acquire information ( events) and convert the events into a format that the Tivoli Enterprise Console (TEC) can use. The adapter then sends the events to the TEC. See also event adapters and TME adapters.
