   Summary of preliminary source code inspection
   1. the structure of the SQLAdapter class
      - constants
      - attributes
      - assoications
      - operations
      - conrete methods
        - some concrete methods return null
      - abstract methods
      - inner classes (Note: They could be informative for understanding the code.)
   2. The class is well documented with javadoc comments.
     (Note: Generate documentation files of these two classes by using this command line:
   3. research strategy: divide and conquer, collaborate
   4. research questions
      a. What do these methods do (i.e. behvioural/functional descriptions)?
         Give examples for illustration.
      b. What are the design/persistence concepts that are encoded by these methods?
         (e.g. object-relational mapping? building a server-specific SQL query?)
   5. research tactics (for the coming two weeks; open for ideas)
      a. select one method or a group of related methods for investigation
      b. read all the javadoc comments in SQLAdapter carefully
              - examples: "Appends an SQL literal to a string buffer.",
                          "Appends the specified SQL type conversion expression to a string buffer."
                          "@param gen The SQLGenerator instance."
                          "Appends a prefix hint to the SQL clause: HINT select ..."
                          "Checks if a given vendor-specific SQL exception is a query timeout exception."
      c. investigate the types of some parameters (e.g. SQLGenerator, SQLJoin, Query)   
      d. read the abstract methods that have been implemented in MySQLAdapter
      e. share the findings with each other
    6. Three lists of methods are given below.
   A. List of abstract methods
      Note: The list of abstract methods is organized by the way the methods appears in the *source code*
