      Description

      From TOMAHAWK-1425:

      Hi Leonardo,

      I have always thought that JSF should add a business-converter for such issues. So we should have a way to convert between the model type that we need for the renderer, and the model-type that the backing-beans use.

      You could register such a converter on the input-component like the normal converter, businessConverter="...". We could also cover stuff like the joda-date with this.

      Eventually, we could even add a central registry for this in MyFaces where you can register business-converters centrally and hence let the renderer automatically retrieve such a a converter for the backing-bean datatype and the datatype it needs.

      best regards,

      Martin

      We'll explore this idea here
