NullAwareTypeConverter<D, S extends Object> class Null safety

A type converter automatically mapping null values to null in both directions.

Instead of overriding fromSql and toSql, subclasses of this converter should implement requireFromSql and requireToSql, which are used to map non-null values to and from sql values, respectively.

Apart from the implementation changes, subclasses of this converter can be used just like all other type converters.
