Active-model-adapter addon in ember 2.0


I’m struggling to understand the purpose of

Is it supposed to polyfill ActiveModel Adapter and Serializer in ember-data 2.0?

I have a number of huge C++ API’s (Rails style payloads) and moving them to JSON API style is currently out of scope so was hoping I could use the addon with ember 2.0 and carry on the old way.

If this is not the case is there any easy way or migration path to convert the Rails-style payload to JSON-API?
