Is it good idea to implement Adapter pattern if both Client interface and adaptee has same return type but the only difference is that adaptee return the array of that object? Can we implement it using Adapter?

I think you'll have to provide more information than that.

An example might help, or simply an explanation of what you're trying to do.

Also: If something needs to return an array, isn't it already a collection of some kind?
