      Description

      This patch fixes the following situation:

      • A converter is bound in faces-config.xml to an interface type (ex. EnumCoded).
      • There is an enum class that implements EnumCoded, like this:

      public enum PickListActionType implements EnumCoded

      { ..... etc... }
      • There is a converter called a GenericEnumTypeConverter, which knows how to deal with these and is declared like this:
        <converter>
        <converter-for-class>EnumCoded</converter-for-class>
        <converter-class>GenericEnumTypeConverter</converter-class>
        </converter>
      • Right now the converter picked by MyFaces is EnumConverter instead of my GenericEnumTypeConverter, b/c the fact that my target class is an enum takes precedence over the fact that it implements EnumCoded interface. This is incorrect.

      This patch fixes the problem.
