Superinterface to all table name converters; designed to impose conventions upon the auto-conversion of class names to database tables. The idea behind this is to allow user-specified table name conventions and standards rather than always enforcing ActiveObjects's idea of "good naming".

Every contains a single table name converter which the entire library uses when performing operations. Any third-party code which interacts with tables directly should make use of this faculty. By using the table name converter even in ORM-external operations, the developers can control table names in a single location and ensure that the conventions need only be maintained in one spot.

public interface TableNameConverter
Generates a table name to correspond with the specified class. The algorithm used must check for the existance of the Table annotation and use the appropriate override when necessary. If this check is not made, ActiveObjects will continue to function normally, but any code assuming the proper imlementation of @Table will likely fail.

clazz The entity type for which a corresponding field name must be generated.
A database table name which corresponds to the given entity type.
    public String getName(Class<? extends RawEntity<?>> clazz);
