Bio::DB::DBAdaptorI - DESCRIPTION of Interface
Give standard usage here
This interface describes the basic datastore adaptor that acts as a factory.
It allows one to obtain adaptors for specific classes or objects, as well as objects that make a class or object peristent.
User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to the Bioperl mailing list. Your participation is much appreciated.

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:
rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : get_object_adaptor Usage : $objadp = $adaptor->get_object_adaptor("Bio::SeqI"); Function: Obtain an PersistenceAdaptorI compliant object for the given class or object. Example : Returns : The appropriate object adaptor, a Bio::DB::PersistenceAdaptorI implementing object. Args : The class (a string) or object for which the adaptor is to be obtained. Optionally, a DBContextI implementing object to initialize the adaptor with.
Title : create_persistent Usage : $dbadaptor->create_persistent($obj) Function: Creates a PersistentObjectI implementing object that adapts the given object to the datastore. Example : Returns : A Bio::DB::PeristentObjectI implementing object Args : An object of a type that can be stored in the datastore adapted by this factory. Alternatively, the class name of such an object. All remaining arguments should be passed to the constructor of the class if the first argument is a class name.
