public abstract class EventAdapter<E,P> extends java.lang.ObjectFacility to convert from and to specialised data models, as may be required by specialized persistence Journals. Typical use cases include (but are not limited to):
- extracting events from "envelopes"
- adapting events from a "domain model" to the "data model", e.g. converting to the Journals storage format, such as JSON, BSON or any specialised binary format
- adapting events from a "data model" to the "domain model"
- adding metadata that is understood by the journal
- migration by splitting up events into sequences of other events
- migration filtering out unused events, or replacing an event with another

fromJournalTransform the event on recovery from the journal. Note that this is not called in any read side so will need to be applied manually when using Query.
Convert a event from its journal model to the applications domain model.
One event may be adapter into multiple (or none) events which should be delivered to the
EventSourcedBehavior. Use the specialised
EventSeq.singlemethod to emit exactly one event, or
EventSeq.emptyin case the adapter is not handling this event.
p- event to be adapted before delivering to the
manifest- optionally provided manifest (type hint) in case the Adapter has stored one for this event,
- sequence containing the adapted events (possibly zero) which will be delivered to

toJournalConvert domain event to journal event type.
Some journal may require a specific type to be returned to them, for example if a primary key has to be associated with each event then a journal may require adapters to return
