I'm attaching a Word document that has the results of my research around the 
on Adapters - what are they, why and when to use them, how to implement them 
use multiple adapters. I was surprised (but should not have been) that they are 
actually an implementation of the Mediator pattern. They are also required for 
AdapterViews (such as ListView and GridView). When you do a 'setAdapter()' on 
the view to change the adapter, the data in the list is automatically 
invalidated, and the list refreshes itself.

The attached contains the details, links and additional information.
